About the project

The Riyala and Mon Reve Riverwalks provide pedestrian access along the river from Wellington Road to Park Avenue.

The entire length of the Riverwalk is 155 metres in length and is split into two sections with the Riyala section being 126 metres long and the Mon Reve section 29 metres long.

The Riverwalk is six metres wide and was built in 2004 with both structures being made using reinforced concrete.

As part of Council’s maintenance program, recent inspections of the Riverwalk highlighted that various parts of the structure are in poor or fair condition and repairs are needed to maintain safety.

These works will include:

  • repairing mortar pads, concrete headstocks and piles
  • removal of trip hazards
  • crack repairs in girders and piles
  • reinstating waterproof joints.
