As the playspace component of the Port Lincoln Foreshore project nears completion, works on other elements of the project will start later this month.
The Port Lincoln Foreshore Concept Plan, endorsed by Council in June 2021, included much needed renewal works on sections of the Seawall and Parnkalla Trail including repairs to structures and paving and minor refurbishment works.
Mayor Diana Mislov said, “McMahon Services have been contracted to undertake the Seawall and Parnkalla Trail works with construction set to start this month. As part of the works a new rock armour wall will be built at the trail’s western end.”
Advanced signage will be in place prior to work commencing along sections of the trail at the western and eastern end. Access to the lower carpark outside the front of the Port Lincoln Hotel will be inaccessible to the public to be used as a worksite for McMahon Services contractors.
“Minor refurbishment works to the jetty carpark toilet block are scheduled to start later this month by local contractor Kym Clarke Construction and will take approximately six weeks to complete. Throughout this time the toilet block may need to be closed and the public are asked to use alternative toilet blocks,” said Mayor Mislov.
“Council is close to entering into a contract for works on the Foreshore Plaza and Activity Zone and it is anticipated these works will start next month.”
“The Port Lincoln Jetty will finally get the much need attention it requires with Maritime Constructions engaged to begin renewal works in June.”
“There is plenty happening along the foreshore over the next six to eight months that will deliver great outcomes for the community. Council acknowledges that there will be quite a bit of disruption associated with these works and will work with the contractors to minimise this as much as possible.”
“We will keep the community informed as work progresses throughout each stage of the projects through Council’s Facebook page and website www.portlincoln.sa.gov.au. Visit Council’s online Engagement Hub firstname.lastname@example.org for the Concept Plan and further details.
