Skiway Park works underway

Demolition works to the Skiway Park promenade have commenced. Works to the northern promenade section will continue over the next two to three weeks, however progress has been affected by inclement weather.

These works comprise Stage 1 of the promenade renewal project and involve demolition and removal of the northern and southern sections.

The centre section is excluded from this stage, however it will be demolished and rebuilt as part of the Stage 2 renewal.

The Stage 2 works incorporates a fish cleaning table, the final location of which will be made as part of the concept design review for the new promenade

Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba said she was pleased that work on the project had begun.

“I know this has been something the community has wanted for some time and it is excellent to see progress,” Cr Saliba said.

“All works are scheduled to maintain access for the community to the boat ramp and jetties,” she said.

Concept designs for the renewal of the northern and centre sections are currently being reviewed by Council prior to detail design and tendering of the Stage 2 works in the second half of 2018.
