Meredith River pedestrian/cycling bridge

A DSRA survey, held in March 2018, indicated overwhelming community support for a pedestrian/cycling bridge over the Meredith River. Council’s Swansea Structure Plan (9.7.1) also states that a pedestrian/cycling bridge should be investigated.

A working group has been established to investigate feasibility and liaise with stakeholders. 

Community member Mal Innes has been working with Council and MAST for over 2 years on this project. Please see minutes from the March 2018 and February 2019 general meetings for information. The new concrete ramp was installation just prior to Easter. The floating landing pontoon will be installed later in the year.' Click on the link for a pdf of the plans.

Work on the legal rights attaching to public beach accesses (Cambria Drive) and private rights of way (Dolphin Sands Road) has been completed. The committee is now in consultation with Council regarding responsibility for maintenance. Please see meeting minutes for updates and post your questions on the forum.

Data about the quantity and type of litter collected is being used to inform future decisions. Discussions with Council are ongoing
