Shared Pathway – Yakapari Seaforth Road, Seaforth
This project formed part of continual planning for footpath infrastructure for the Mackay Regional Council Sustainability Strategy 2017-2022. The new footpath predominantly provides access for school students, both walking and riding their bikes, to travel safely to and from school along Yakapari-Seaforth Road, Seaforth.
The shared pathway was a mixture of asphalt, concrete and boardwalk structures.
- 4 Composite fibre structure boardwalks including driven and bored piers, constructed across 4 separate waterways.
- 4 km of asphalt surfaced pathway
Seaforth Civil supplied all labour, plant, material, supervision and survey for this project. Scope included:
The new shared pathway is a fantastic sight as you approach Seaforth as it rolls through the trees, and the boardwalks provide a striking picture where they span the waterways.
The pathway provides a safe passage for schoolchildren to travel from the main community to the school, and provides a much anticipated recreational facility for all local residents to walk, run or ride that has been used and enjoyed since the day of opening.
