Hardings Hotmix have been awarded the Sulphur Creek to Penguin section of the Coastal Pathway and work started in November 2021 on this long-awaited section of the Coastal Pathway. When complete, the section will form approximately 5.5km of separated shared pathway starting at the Penguin Miniature Railway and terminating on Hogarth Road where it joins into an existing section of Coastal Pathway on the southern side of the Bass Highway.
The section will see the construction of 4.8km of new shared pathway fully separated from traffic on the northern side of Preservation Drive, the path crosses the road to the southern side of Preservation Drive approximately 200m to the east of the Highway Halt. The remaining 700m continues along the southern side of Preservation Drive until the intersection with Hogarth Road.
Work has commenced with road widening on the southern side of the road between Penguin and the Penguin Surf Life Saving Club. The road widening will allow for the path to be constructed on the northern side of Preservation Drive.
Hardings have set the site offices up close to the Penguin Surf Life Saving Club and this will be the base of operations for the duration of the project.
