ABOUT THE PROJECT

Bayside Bay Trail Duplication & Seawall Restoration - Brighton Beach

The Bayside Bay Trail is a key coastal pedestrian/cyclist path that connects Mordialloc to Port Melbourne and the CBD alike. Prior to the project, there was one section along this route adjacent to Middle Brighton Beach that forced pedestrians and cyclists onto a shared path, causing a pinch point for public users. The result of the works allowed for of a new, duplicate 135m bike path, ensuring separate access for pedestrians and cyclists along the whole trail.
Also included in the project was the replacement of an existing timber groyne, a key infrastructure asset for Middle Brighton Pier and the Royal Brighton Yacht Club that helps to control the sand erosion from the beach.
The project represents another facet of Entracon’s diverse range of capabilities, with aspects of the coastal project successfully completed at or below the water line.
