Council has budgeted $420,000 to rebuild the 205 metre jetty walk between Gordon Park and Anzac Park at Nambucca Heads. It will be constructed in four sections: two bridge sections built using 10 metre span girders supported by concrete piers and two sections of concrete path on rock beds.
The new jetty walk will be three metres wide to allow shared access by pedestrians and fishermen. It will have two medium-sized fishing platforms funded by $77,000 from the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries.
A site preparation phase will be carried out from approximately 17-21 June 2019. Work will include removing some Casuarina trees as they are damaging a retaining wall and access needs to be made for a crane.
Jetty walk construction will be carried out from approximately 17 June to mid August 2019.

The Nambucca Shire water supply is a single source supply drawn from bores sunk into alluvial deposits adjacent to the Nambucca River upstream of the town of Bowraville. Studies have confirmed that the aquifer has limited storage capacity and cannot be expected to meet current and future water supply demands during periods of drought. During the drought of 2002 two of the eight bores began to run dry and it was estimated that there was between 30 to 60 days supply of water available when the drought broke.
Council engaged the NSW Public Works (NSW Water Solutions) to prepare a concept design for an upgrade of the works along with a REF (Review of Environmental Factors) to investigate the likely social and environmental impacts of the proposal.
An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared on behalf of Nambucca Shire Council for the proposed Bowraville Off River Water Storage in the Nambucca Valley.
