FOLLOWING the completion of the upgrades to stairs at Fisherman’s Hollow last month, the City of Wanneroo will close the nearby toilet block for refurbishment.

The works are part of upgrades around the Yanchep Lagoon foreshore, and the original mosaic of Fisherman’s Hollow will be restored on the toilet block.

“The refurbishment will also include new male, female and disabled toilets, sinks, walls, a roof restoration and the facility is being made flood-proof with upgrades to external drainage,” a City statement said.

“The existing toilets will be closed from Monday, July 25 to Friday, October 21 and there will be no access to the toilets during this time.

“However, the public toilets located near the Yanchep Beach Lagoon Café will remain available.”

It said five parking bays would also be reserved for the contractor during the works.

The City originally planned to demolish the 44-year-old toilet block but deemed costs to build a new one too high.

Between May and June, concrete slab steps at Fisherman’s Hollow were removed and replaced with aluminium stairs with recycled rubber treads to improve beach access.
