WALKERS and cyclists will be redirected along Honeysuckle’s waterfront as part of work to bolster the suburb’s sea wall.
Hunter Development Corporation will put roughly 27,000 tonnes of rock along the shoreline at Lee wharves four and five.
HDC chief executive Michael Cassel said the works, expected to take about five months, were important infrastructure to ensure the area’s safety.
“The upcoming works will see around 250 metres of shoreline repaired and built for the future,” he said.
“We know that locals enjoy walking along the popular promenade and that cyclists use it as a key transport route, so we hope that improvements will only make it more attractive and more inviting for people to use.”
Mr Cassel said extra works would continue to help the Honeysuckle walk link over the next two years to bring public spaces to life.
He said the harbourside promenade could link with the Bathers Way “to create a must-visit destination”.
“In the near future, I believe we can rival other well-known coastal walks like Bondi to Bronte in the eastern beaches,” Mr Cassel said.
