Cape work continues

The next stage of improvements of one of the Glenelg Shire’s most loved tourist attractions is now under way, with works having started at Cape Bridgewater.

Stage two works of the Cape Bridgewater Master Plan Infrastructure Upgrade will take place over the coming months, with local contractors onsite to begin the next stage of this key project.

Glenelg Shire Deputy Mayor Cr Jayden Smith said stage two works will include upgrades to carparking, a boardwalk and footpaths, which will create a connecting pathway to all designated car parking areas, further landscaping, seats, picnic tables and barbecue facility and shelter.

“Following earlier difficulties in sourcing contractors, stage two works have been successfully tendered and we are pleased to confirm local contractors GR Carr will be completing this next key stage of the Cape Bridgewater Foreshore works,” he said.

“Stage two works have been designed in response to the feedback received on the Cape Bridgewater Masterplan, including the need to upgrade the carparks, provision of barbecue facilities and seating.

“Cape Bridgewater is a much loved, family-friendly destination and these upgrades will ensure locals and visitors alike can enjoy greater public facilities at this iconic beach.

“We have been careful to ensure we do not block the view to this pristine beachfront, as this was another piece of valuable feedback we received from the community.

“Works are also looking to integrate with and protect the natural environment.

“The furniture and boardwalk will be built from materials to complement the natural look and feel of the area, and there will be formalised pathways and additional drainage for better stormwater management.

“The footpath and integrated boardwalk will also provide all abilities access to the facilities and beach from all three carparks.

“We look forward to seeing these important works take shape.”

The Cape Bridgewater Master Plan Infrastructure Upgrade works are funded by the Victorian Government through the Victorian Building Works package.
