Point Lonsdale Jetty temporary works closure

Friday 15 February, 2013

Point Lonsdale Jetty will be closed temporarily to enable $660,000 of upgrade works that began in July to be completed.

A crane will be used to install heavy timbers. This will require the jetty to be closed for approximately 2 weeks from Monday 11 February to ensure the safety of the public and contractors.

“The works have been progressing well and new decking, crossheads and beams are now in place. Piles have been strengthened and new electrical services have been installed,” said Parks Victoria Ranger in Charge Steve McPhee.

“The painted timber handrail and capping with the re-instated timber bracing will have the jetty looking like new again,” he said.

To minimise disruptions, Parks Victoria is working with contractors to ensure the jetty will only be closed while works are taking place. The jetty will be opened every evening and closed again in the morning. It will remain open on weekends.

“We ask that people respect this short closure and understand that once the works are finished, they will be able to enjoy using this jetty for many years,” said Mr McPhee.

The jetty was opened to the public during the summer holidays, with some minor works undertaken in January.
