Southend Footpath Alignment Options

Council are seeking feedback from the Southend community regarding the location of a proposed new footpath. The new proposed footpath will link the existing footpath infrastructure between the drain crossing and the Geltwood Memorial located approximately 700m away on Cape Buffon Drive.

Three alignments for the proposed new footpath have been identified, each with their individual pros and cons, details are:

Option 1
Bridges Drive

Follows the edge of the Lake Frome Drain in a westerly direction, joining the reserve that contains public toilets, the BBQ area and provides direct beach access. This route will see pedestrian interaction with vehicles in the vicinity of the public reserve parking area. Permission will need to be sought from the South Eastern Water Conservation and Drainage Board to construct a path along the drain edge and is the longest route option of the three.

Option 2
Cape Buffon Drive - Cape Buffon Drive South Side

Has the most potential interactions with vehicles, containing three road crossings. The proposed path initially crosses Bridges Drive, then immediately crosses over Cape Buffon Drive. The south side of Cape Buffon Drive has ample room for a full width footpath, however separation between the road way and path would be in the form of painted lines only. The path would then cross Cape Buffon Drive past the western end of Bridges Drive before continuing to the memorial.

Option 3
Cape Buffon Drive - Cape Buffon Drive North Side

The most direct route to the Geltwood Memorial. This route has two road crossings, at each end of Bridges Drive. Most of the proposed path alignment is separated from the road by kerb and channel. Additional kerbing is proposed to be constructed to continue this separation, which would also alleviate the regular stormwater flooding issues of private property. The proposed alignment would see a localised narrowing at one location due to the close proximity to property boundaries.

Council are requesting Southend residents and visitors to review the three proposed alignments and provide feedback on the options presented.

Written submissions should be marked ‘Southend Proposed Footpath Alignment’ and addressed to the Chief Executive Officer and can be:

  • posted to PO Box 27, Millicent SA 5280
  • dropped in at any of Council’s offices, or
  • emailed to council@wattlerange.sa.gov.au

Alternatively, you can complete the online survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/southendfootpathoptions

Written submissions and survey responses will be received by Council until 5pm on Thursday, 10 October 2019.
