Town Beach transformation continues as shared path completed
Published on 15 July 2021
Another important infrastructure upgrade at Town Beach has been completed, with a new shared path in place at the much-loved local precinct.
Stage 1 of the Conti Foreshore shared path project has recently been finished, which has seen the construction of a three-metre-wide path from Town Beach to Guy Street.
This work will make Town Beach more accessible and is part of a wider $24 million redevelopment of the precinct over recent years.
Stage 2 of the path will see Town Beach connected to Matso’s Brewery, with this work to be completed in the 2021-22 financial year.
Through extensive forward planning, the Shire has looked to link our town’s major precincts, Chinatown and Town Beach, with new infrastructure.
The shared path project, which has been co-funded by the Shire of Broome and the State Government, is one of a host of significant infrastructure upgrades completed over the last 12 months.
Shire of Broome president Harold Tracey, who met with WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti yesterday, said Town Beach was a real asset for our town.
“The Town Beach foreshore has been transformed over recent years, with collaboration between the Shire of Broome and the State Government to redevelop one of our most scenic and significant local precincts,” he said.
“The project has provided Broome with another fantastic, functional open space for events and activation.
“The completion of Stage 2 of the Conti Foreshore shared path, the redevelopment of Roebuck Bay Caravan Park and the new Town Beach jetty are the final pieces in the puzzle.
“It is fantastic to see local families and visitors to Broome making full use of Town Beach, with the project a great example of different tiers of government working together for the greater good.”
