31 August 2016 Next Stage of Jetty4Shores Project to Begin

Construction will start next week on a new car park at the Jetty Foreshores – the first phase of the $9.2m Jetty4Shores Events and Active Recreation Hub. ​

The 60-space car park is to be built to the north of the centrepiece Jetty Walkway, adjacent to Jordan Esplanade.

This phase will also include drainage improvements, landscaping and footpath connections to the Walkway. In addition, kerb and guttering will be installed along Jordan Esplanade next to the car park.

Construction will be finished by the end of October to avoid the busy Christmas holiday season and planned special events.

Detailed design work is ongoing for the plaza and terraced steps onto Jetty Beach, a boardwalk linking the plaza to the head of the historic Jetty and the events and market area.

Geotechnical investigations, heritage and environmental assessments have also begun, along with the redesign of the existing electrical infrastructure and storm water systems.

These detailed design and environmental approvals are scheduled to be completed by November 2016 with construction works expected to begin in the second quarter of 2017.

The Australian Government's Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development’s National Stronger Regions Fund is funding half the cost of the $9.2m project.
