$1.2m to fund St Kilda Pier works
Wednesday 1 August, 2012
Minister for Ports Denis Napthine visited St Kilda Pier today to announce $1.2 million in funding for works to St Kilda Pier precinct in a project that will improve public access and future-proof breakwater infrastructure to allow for further development in the future.
The project consists of two components. Firstly, the $1 million redevelopment of a public access jetty located near the St Kilda Pier kiosk and extending into the bay.
The funding will ensure public access to the jetty is maintained and will provide potential future public berthing options for recreational boaters.
The timing of the works would also take the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron’s (RMYS) breakwater and marina extension project into account with an additional $200,000 allocated to future proof the RMYS breakwater works.
The $200,000 investment will see vertical steel sleeves installed at the southern end of the RMYS’s 100 metre breakwater extension to provide an important foundation for future redevelopment of the pier.
St Kilda Pier is a historic and popular landmark attracting over 2 million visitors annually.
The RMYS development will provide protection from rough weather conditions, improve access and increase capacity for boating enthusiasts.
