Project Overview

The Belconnen Arts Centre Foreshore Path Link is a landmark project located along the shores of Lake Ginninderra, ACT. The project encompassed reclamation of a section of the lake, construction of an over water boardwalk, pedestrian path extension and extensive landscaping. The works complete a missing link in the Lake Ginninderra foreshore path network and improved public amenity, integrating with the Belconnen Arts Centre and Belconnen Foreshore precincts.

The completed works consist of soft and hard landscaped areas between the Belconnen Arts Centre and the lake, stone steps leading to the lakes angular inlet, 3.5-metre-wide asphalt shared path and a boardwalk. The main feature of the project is the steel boardwalk, which hosts two lookout platforms and rest areas on either side of the inlet, the western side close to water level and the eastern side connecting to the existing path infrastructure that continues along the lakeshore to Emu Bank “Eat Street”. The walkway consists of bored piers with a steel frame, mesh grating deck, and kerbed edging with a shroud to deflect water for improved circulation and to prevent water-borne rubbish accumulating on the foreshore.
