Middle Brighton Pier project

The existing 1938 section of pier to breakwater connection

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 sought feedback on key areas of the draft plan.  Thank you to all who participated. The project team are currently reviewing the community feedback.  Please check back on this page for project updates.
