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.”
