Works to take a break on fore­shore

Southern Telegraph - - News -

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.
