Construction to start late February!

We are excited to announce that the highly anticipated Witton Bluff Base Trail construction is commencing soon.

Work will begin at the Port Noarlunga end and be staged as follows:

  • The boardwalk will commence late February 2024 and be completed late 2024
  • The seawall and path will commence late 2024 and is expected to be completed mid-2025

Construction will be undertaken during the hours of 7am and 5.30pm Monday to Saturday. There may be work outside of these hours due to site conditions such as weather.

Throughout the construction period, there will be some impacts on the surrounding area, such as increased construction traffic and noise. The boat ramp will be closed, however emergency services will still have access.

Additionally, a site office will be established in Port Noarlunga, and certain areas will have restricted access to ensure public safety.

There are two access locations that will be used to access the construction site. Click the links below to view these locations:

More information about the construction can be found in the frequently asked questions here.

We will continue to keep this page updated as work progresses. If you'd like to receive project updates, click the +Follow button.

Background Information

The Witton Bluff Base Trail (WBBT), a 1.37km section of accessible pathway around Witton Bluff, between the foreshore at Christies Beach and Port Noarlunga forms part of the State Government’s Coast Park initiative and the City of Onkaparinga’s Coast Park Plan 2019.

The proposal reinforces the State Government’s Coast Park vision to enhance open space linkages and ensure safe, accessible and convenient access for pedestrians and cyclists. The Coast Park Plan identifies and prioritises segments along the City’s coast yet to be completed and the Witton Bluff Base Trail is the remaining link for a continuous coastal pathway from O’Sullivan’s Beach to Moana.

The $6.7 million project is jointly funded by Council and the State Government.
