Palm Beach – Mallawa Drive pathway

Commencing: October 2020
Completion March 2021

Project information

We are constructing a pathway on the eastern side of Mallawa Drive between Nineteenth Avenue and Tahiti Avenue in Palm Beach.

This project aligns with the City’s Active Transport Strategy and will improve safety for all road users. It will also enable active transport to surrounding destinations, improve network connectivity and improve accessibility.

The pathway will be compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) and provides the ‘missing link’ in the transit route from Nineteenth Avenue to Tahiti Avenue.

The City has contributed $110,000 towards the pre-construction phase of the project. An additional $900,000 has been contributed under the State Government COVID Works for Queensland initiatives.

Construction details

  • Construction of a new 1.3 kilometre long, 1.8 metre wide, concrete pathway on the eastern side of Mallawa Drive.
  • Upgrade of driveways and construction of pedestrian kerb ramps will be compliant with DDA requirements.
  • Landscaping will give the street a fresh new look.

To minimise impacts, the work will be undertaken in stages during standard hours of Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm. No night works are expected. Local residents may experience on street parking restrictions and minor detours around active works. Localised traffic using Mallawa Drive as a transit route may experience minor traffic delays due to traffic management around works vehicles.

We will do our best to minimise disruptions and we thank you in advance for your patience.

Benefits for the community

  • A new pathway improving safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists whilst encouraging active travel.
  • A better-connected Gold Coast.
  • DDA-compliant pedestrian access ramps.
