A Shorten Labor Government if elected will commit $2.7 million towards completing the coastal trail at Witton Bluff. This project will link Christies Beach and Port Noarlunga with a walking and cycling track around the iconic Witton Bluff.
Labor has listened to the many local residents and businesses who have been asking for the trail to be completed.
A completed coastal trail at Witton Bluff will provide local residents with better access to this stunning section of Adelaide coastline.
The trail will improve connectivity between the Christies Beach and Port Noarlunga business precincts and unlock economic potential for the two communities.
Completing the trail at Witton Bluff is an important step in completing the Coastal Park in Southern Adelaide, which will link Hallett Cove to Sellicks Beach with a walking and cycling track.
Similar tracks across Australia, such as the Bondi to Bronte Walk, have transformed their local communities and become significant tourist attractions.
Completing the Coastal Park will connect Southern Adelaide’s beautiful, pristine coastline and create exciting tourism opportunities for the southern suburbs.
Labor’s announcement of $2.7 million will require matched funding from the City of Onkaparinga. The City of Onkaparinga will be ultimately responsible for delivering the project in consultation with local residents, businesses and Indigenous leaders.
