Foothpath Closed

21 Apr 2021, 1:30 PM

The footpath along Esplanade from the Cenotaph to Sheridan Street Bridge has been closed in the interests of protecting public safety. The deteriorating retaining wall has been on Council's radar for some time, and previously a number of trees were cut down to prevent further deterioration of the wall. Due to ongoing rocks from the wall falling on the footpath, and poor drainage leading to a slippery footpath surface, the decision has been made to close this footpath until a new wall and footpath can be constructed.
