Nedlands foreshore redevelopment to begin this month

NEDLANDS foreshore will be restored under a $1.2 million project between the City of Nedlands and the Department of Parks and Wildlife.

The project, which will begin this month and be rolled out in two stages, will include construction of a rock revetment wall and landscaping from the Sunset Foreshore and the Tawarri Reception Centre.In the second stage, repairs will be made to the river wall, from the worst sections from the Tawarri Reception Centre to the Perth Squadron Yacht Club groyne.

Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said the work could be progressed because of partial funding from the Department of Parks and Wildlife, with the balance being allocated in the city’s annual budget.

“The restoration of the river wall is an important project for the improvement of the Nedlands Foreshore and will be one of two major projects due to begin in 2017,” he said.

“We are progressing with the development of the foreshore and there will be a hive of activity in the area next year.”
