Planning is currently secured for this section of the Greenway. Works would involve but not be limited to construction of a 3.5 m asphalt greenway with lighting, drainage, landscaping, retaining structures, embankments, fencing, ancillary works, as well as creating links to attractions, amenities and residential areas from the greenway.
