Mylestom Pathway Project Update

The Mylestom Pathway Project is a New South Wales Government Stronger Country Communities funded project that will deliver a 1.8m wide and 620-metre-long shared pathway along the length of Alma Doepel Reserve to the North Beach Bowling Club via Mylestom Reserve.

As per the resolution of Council’s Ordinary meeting held Wednesday 29 January 2020, the final stages of project planning, scoping, design and Review of Environmental Factors have been completed and a Request for Quotes (RFQ) has been issued to deliver these works.

Consequently, it is anticipated that subject to RFQ assessments and weather conditions, that these works will commence early June 2020 and will feature:

● a meandering 620-metre-long shared pathway alignment along the length of Alma Doepel Reserve

● improved placement of park furniture

● safe and user-friendly shared pathway access between Alma Doepel Reserve and the North Beach Bowling Club*

● improved shared pathway access for prams, mobility scooters, wheelchairs and walking aids

* It is anticipated that an additional 120m of shared pathway between Christian Parade and the North Beach Bowling Club will be delivered.

Additionally, as per the resolution of Council’s Ordinary meeting held Wednesday 29 January 2020, Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 3 works will also commence to complement the Mylestom Pathway Project and will feature:

● approximately 540 metres of kerb and gutter along River Street

● 10 formalised parking spaces plus 1 dedicated disabled parking space opposite the Mylestom Store

● improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists

● improved drainage and natural landscape structural support

● widening of the road alignment along sections of the western side of River Street

The Mylestom Pathway Project page will be continually updated throughout the project as information becomes available and Council thanks you in advance for your cooperation and patience during these works.

● Update - Council has appointed a contractor to deliver the Mylestom Pathway Project and complementary Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 3 works. It is anticipated (subject to weather) that these works will commence in early June and be completed by July 2020.

Project Design Process

● During the design process an AQF Level 5 Arborist was engaged to conduct a preliminary Arboricultural Impact Assessment (AIA) and Tree Protection Plan (TPP). This advice was considered during design refinements and the final pathway alignment has been adjusted to avoid impacting the mature gum trees in Alma Doepel Reserve.

● Along River Street there are 4 Tuckeroo trees that will require pruning and the removal of deadwood to ensure the risk rating of falling branches is reduced.

Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 3 Works - Details

● New kerb & gutter will be installed along the existing roadway to improve drainage and provide enhanced delineation between Alma Doepel Reserve and the roadway.

● The new kerb and gutter will begin in parallel with the 11 formalised car parking spaces to be provided opposite the Mylestom Store and will continue along River Street to Christian Parade.

● A new raised kerb will be installed to separate the pathway from River Street in parallel with the 11 formalised car parking spaces to be provided opposite the Mylestom Store.

● The new raised kerb will continue around the corner of River Street to the end of the existing ‘No Parking’ zone opposite the Mylestom Store.

● A rolled trafficable kerb will be installed from the end of the existing ‘No Parking’ zone opposite the Mylestom Store to Christian Parade.

Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 3 Works - Vegetation

● 3 trees adjacent to Alma Doepel Reserve have been identified as being impacted by these works.

● The AQF Level 5 Arborist has advised that the 3 trees are: 1 dead Tuckeroo tree, 1 Tuckeroo Tree showing signs of decline and deadwood and 1 Pink Bloodwood in poor health and exhibiting signs of significant decline.

● These 3 trees are to be removed and replaced with suitable offset plantings (as per Round 3 Works Vegetation Image below).
