Fore­shore restora­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

NED­LANDS fore­shore will be re­stored un­der a $1.2 mil­lion project be­tween the City of Ned­lands and the De­part­ment of Parks and Wildlife.

The project will be­gin this month in two stages, in­clud­ing con­struc­tion of a rock revet­ment wall and land­scap­ing from the Sun­set Fore­shore to the Tawarri Re­cep­tion Cen­tre.

In the sec­ond stage, re­pairs will be made to the most de­graded sec­tions of the river wall, from the Tawarri Re­cep­tion Cen­tre to the Perth Squadron Yacht Club groyne.

Ned­lands Mayor Max Hip­kins said the work could be­gin be­cause of par­tial fund­ing from the De­part­ment of Parks and Wildlife, with the bal­ance com­ing from the City’s an­nual bud­get.

“The restora­tion of the river wall is an im­por­tant project for the im­prove­ment of the Ned­lands Fore­shore and will be one of two ma­jor projects due to be­gin in 2017,” he said.

“We are pro­gress­ing with the de­vel­op­ment of the fore­shore and there will be a hive of ac­tiv­ity in the area next year.”
