Pedestrian–friendly waterfront walkway
The first village project to have a major impact on the village was the development of a safe wide walkway around the coastline along Beach Road. Previously walking around Beach Road meant dodging between parked cars on a crumbly road edge. Residents and visitors wanted safe roads and footpaths accessible to everyone.
Traffic calming measures were introduced which enabled PRA to commission the building of a two metre wide macrocarpa promenade around Beach Road and the wide paved area around the shops known as café corner.
This now allows residents and visitors to walk from the entrance of Plimmerton safely right around the coastline through the village to the boating club and beyond.
