The City’s infrastructure director Dennis Blair said most of the work to lower and realign the boardwalk and rehabilitate dune vegetation between Compass Circle and Foreshore Vista had been finished.

‘However, the boardwalk cannot open until the application of an anti-slip coating which requires suitable weather conditions,’ he said.

Mr Blair said the opening was ‘imminent’ but asked for patience and for residents to inform police if they witness any acts of vandalism.

Dubbed the skybridge after it was built in 2009, the boardwalk split community views and eventually the City of Wanneroo and WA Planning Commission agreed through the State Administrative Tribunal to lower it.
