Sugar Wharf repairs
REPAIR works on the pylons of the historical Sugar Wharf will begin this week.
The initial works includes the cleaning of metal pylons which involves a sandblasting process and painting of the pylons.
Work required on the timber pylons will be undertaken at a later date.
Scaffolding will be erected underneath the Sugar Wharf to enable contractors to safely access the area.
As the Sugar Wharf is a heritage listed property, Council has received the appropriate permits to undertake the works from the State Government.
There will be some access restrictions to Sugar Wharf during the works that are expected to take six to eight weeks.
The stairs and small boat platform will also be temporarily closed during this time.
While there will be restrictions on the wooden wharf area, locals will still be able to use the concrete Prince’s Wharf for fishing.
There will be no interruptions or impacts on any booked weddings at the Sugar Wharf during June and July while the works are being carried out.
