Middle Brighton Pier project
Middle Brighton Pier is a popular pier providing unique views over Port Phillip Bay and is a base for a range of recreation, including yachting, fishing and swimming. The Pier is also located along the Bay Trail, one of Melbourne’s most well-used walking and cycling trails.
The Middle Brighton Pier project
Regular monitoring has identified that a middle section of the Pier, built in 1938, requires replacement. It is in poor condition which impacts on maintenance of the breakwater, the pedestrian path and boats moored in the harbour.
The draft concept plan
Informed by community feedback, a draft concept plan has been developed for replacement of the 1938 section. The concept plan aims to replace the deteriorated section of pier and breakwater to reduce wave pressure and improve access to the outer section of the breakwater for both pedestrians and maintenance works
Between Tuesday 28 March and Friday 21 April 2017, we are seeking feedback on key areas of the draft plan.
You can review the draft concept plan, and provide feedback on key areas of the draft plan through an online survey.
