The sixth stage of upgrades to the popular Alexandra Headland foreshore is now complete and being enjoyed by summer loving locals and visitors.
Division 4 Councillor Chris Thompson said the improvements included a larger grassed area, new revetment wall and upgraded beach access.
“This work makes the area more suitable for events, just in time for the holidays,” Cr Thompson said.
“We have installed new park furniture, extended the coastal pathway and upgraded the beach access.
“Unlike previous stages of the upgrade, much of this work can’t be seen and includes important operational infrastructure such as an improved stormwater outlet and electrical infrastructure.
“The new revetment wall and dune revegetation will help protect against erosion when severe weather hits, as it usually does over summer.
“This is just one of many park and recreation projects included in council’s $183 million capital works program, each of which helps create vibrant spaces for people to enjoy the Coast’s great lifestyle.”
Previous upgrades to the foreshore included custom park furniture, such as the popular timber daybeds, a large shelter, lighting and extensive landscaping.
The next stage is due to start in early 2016 and includes refurbishment of the playground and skate park.
