A temporary closure of Moondarewa Spit will be in place next week as part of the continued improvement works for Doug Jennings Park. The closure will only affect vehicle access to the area, with pedestrian access maintained throughout the works.
These works are a part of the multi-million dollar makeover of the area which is expected to be completed by December in time for the busy Christmas holiday period.
The planned closure will be in place from Monday 6 November until Friday 10 November, to ensure minimal impact on the majority of park users that visit on the weekends.
GCWA CEO Hal Morris said the closure is necessary for a new roundabout to be built ensuring safer vehicle movement in the area.
“We thank the community for their cooperation during the works and for their ongoing support of the project,” said Mr Morris.
“This project is a perfect example of the community’s involvement throughout the consultation and design process and it’s wonderful to see the excitement now the project is underway,” said Mr Morris.
The ring road and northern carpark are already closed and will remain closed during the project with pedestrian access to the emergency access stairs, the Seaway wall and northern beach still open throughout.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience whilst these restrictions are in place and are looking forward to everyone being able to enjoy the park even more once summer is here.”
