Works to take a break on foreshore
The Rockingham Beach Foreshore will reopen to the public on Sunday, with work shutting down on the $15.748 million project’s first stage to give people and local businesses the chance to take advantage of the summer weather.
Short-stay parking will be available in bays along both sides of Railway Terrace and four new disabled parking bays will be available on Rockingham Beach Road.
There will also be two drop-off/ pick-up bays.
The site offices, construction fencing and construction equipment will all be removed over the two-month construction break, allowing visitors easy access to Churchill Park, the beach, and local businesses.
Construction will restart on February 18 and will be completed by the end of September.
Access throughout the boardwalk will remain and steps to the beach will be open, with the first tier of the new terrace in front of
the boardwalk also accessible. City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged visitors to visit the foreshore over the summer break.
“The Rockingham Beach Foreshore Revitalisation is one of the most exciting projects ever undertaken in the city and will change
the face of the foreshore precinct as we know it,” he said. “The summer shutdown is a great chance for visitors to head down to the foreshore to check out the progress that’s been made so far.
Over the summer break, the City will host its usual New Year’s Eve and Australia Day celebrations.
Come Sunday the site office, fences and machinery at the Rockingham foreshore will be no more until mid-February.
