Gold Coast’s Seaway Promenade nears completion

A new Seaway Promenade making the most of expansive views along the Gold Coast’s spectacular coastline is nearing completion at The Spit.

The project is being delivered under The Spit Master Plan.

Acting Premier Steven Miles inspected progress on the Promenade during a visit to the Gold Coast today.

When the Promenade opens next month, locals and visitors will be able to stroll out to the viewing platform at the end of the seawall and enjoy views south along the city’s coastline and to the north the scenic beaches of South Stradbroke Island, transforming the Seaway Promenade into one of the Gold Coast’s must-visit destinations.

The Queensland Government is investing $6.84 million in delivering the Seaway Promenade, the recently-opened Moondarewa Spit foreshore improvements and a shared pathway between Sea World and Doug Jennings Park.

A four-metre-wide pedestrian and cycle pathway runs the full length of the Promenade. New Seaway emergency access stairs have been installed along with seating and viewing spots.

Landscaping is being done in the area near the Seaway Tower and the intersection with Federation Walk.

GCWA CEO, Hal Morris, said The Spit is well-loved by locals and visitors and it’s great to be delivering the facilities the community said they wanted to see when consultation was undertaken for The Spit Master Plan.
