$1.65 million St Kilda pier jetty works upgrade completed
Thursday 13 February, 2014
Over 8 million visitors to St Kilda Pier now have better access the St Kilda harbour as a result of a $1.65 million upgrade to the St Kilda Pier jetty arm.
The works to upgrade St Kilda jetty arm were officially opened on Tuesday 11 February 2014 and are now open to the public.
The upgrade replaced the ageing timber jetty arm structure and updated facilities with better lighting, a viewing deck area and new handrails and is an integral part of a longer term St Kilda Harbour upgrade that will breathe new life into this iconic location.
The jetty arm complements the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron’s recently completed $14 million marina replacement and breakwater extension project which significantly improves boating safety in St Kilda Harbour.
An additional $165,000 floating pontoon will be installed for public berthing adjacent to the newly completed jetty arm. Works to install the new short term public berthing will commence shortly.
The rejuvenation of St Kilda Harbour is a successful collaboration between the State Government, Parks Victoria, the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron and many other stakeholders- a great result from a significant investment in the St Kilda Pier precinct.
