Driftwood Road Beach Access Footpath Upgrade Project

The Driftwood Road Beach Access Footpath Upgrade Project has been identified by the Community as a priority site for improvement. Currently the trail ends at a bank above the beach, which is seeing erosion from people scaling down to the beach. The RDN is inviting qualified and experienced contractors to bid on this opportunity. Specifications and design drawings for the construction of a staircase to the beach and related site works have been prepared and are enclosed herein.
