The work on the new Jetty4Shores Walkway
linking the Jetty Strip to the historic jetty will mean a temporary change to
pedestrian access into the Foreshores via the railway level crossing from
Monday June 1 until June 15.
For two weeks, the footpath on the southern
side of Marina Drive – from the ‘Whale Tail’ sculpture, across the level
crossing and to the first roundabout at Jordan Esplanade - will be blocked off.
Instead, pedestrians will need to use the northern footpath to cross over the
level crossing and continue their journeys.
This can be reached by crossing the
junction of Marina Drive and Orlando Street from the ‘Whale Tail’ side to the
footpath near Fiasco’s Restaurant.
Signage warning pedestrians of the change –
and to alert motorists to the increased numbers of pedestrians crossing the
junction of Marina Drive and Orlando Street – is being installed. Vehicle
access to the Foreshores via Marina Drive will not be affected by the works.
