Wilsons Prom’s Loo-Errn boardwalk flood recovery works completed

Friday 5 April, 2013

The second anniversary of the major storm at Wilsons Promontory National Park was marked by the completion of a $596,000 recovery works program at the Loo-Errn Boardwalk.

The works included widening the boardwalk to current disability standards and elevating sections in flood prone areas to allow for year-long access.

Wilsons Promontory was subjected to a major storm event in 2011 which damaged infrastructure throughout the park.

A river surge associated with the storm event resulted in the collapse of a large section of the existing Tidal River embankment, including the boardwalk and fishing platforms.

The cultural and environment values of the area were considered in the works.
