Cudgen Creek boardwalk opened
AN elevated boardwalk on the banks of Cudgen Creek was officially opened yesterday morning.
Mayor of Tweed Shire, Councillor Warren Polglase took a walk along the 300-metre foreshore structure and said he was impressed with the way it was built out over the water.
“It’s a very popular and well-loved creek and this boardwalk allows residents and visitors to get up close to water and even view the marine life,” Cr Polglase said yesterday.
“The other benefit is the connection this boardwalk makes with the existing boardwalks and paths at Clough Lane and Marine Parade, making it easy to walk or ride from Salt at South Kingscliff, which is great for a healthy lifestyle.”
Built at a cost of $828,847, the Cudgen Creek boardwalk has a concrete sub-structure topped with pre-cast concrete panel deck slabs.
Council provided $421,078 for the project, with $144,847 worth of funding coming from developer Section 94 contributions.
Another grant of $263,000 was obtained cycleways funding from the New South Wales Department of Planning.
