The Seagull Walkway is a prominent feature in downtown Campbell River connecting Robert Oster Park with the Government Wharf. The walkway provides approximately 240m long waterfront pedestrian connection as part of the City’s overall sea walk network.
The first section was built in the early 1980s followed by the second section in 1994. Since 2001 ongoing condition assessments have tracked the degrading condition of the walkway and related retaining structure to the point that in 2014 it was determined that the entire structure should be considered for full replacement.
As part of the recently completed engineering analysis, it has been confirmed that the remedial works can be limited to the north section at this time. This will require removal of sections of the existing concrete walkway in order to address structural deficiencies below. The modified approach will now consist of a riprap buttress to be installed in the marine basin providing necessary support to the failed components of the existing timber structure. Once completed the surface deck will be resurfaced. The street lighting will also be evaluated for replacement and subject to external funding opportunities, be replaced as part of the project. This will result in closure of the walkway while construction is underway.
