Middle Brighton Pier on track for summer reopening
Vital repair and maintenance work to Middle Brighton Pier are set for completion to restore public access just in time for summer.
The repairs to 340 metres of the pier will ensure its safety while planning is undertaken for the long-term vision of the pier precinct.
The works are funded through the Victorian Government’s $24 million Piers and Jetties economic stimulus package.
Urgent remediation work to the underside of the section built in 1977 was carried out between January and April 2021 to strengthen the piles and crossheads.
The final stage of repairs to the section from the foreshore to the marina entrance will commence in mid-July and is expected to be completed by December 2021.
The pier will be completely closed for approximately ten weeks from mid-July to end of September 2021.
A 150-metre section of pier from the foreshore up to the low landing may be opened at stages during the works to allow public access.
Once complete, 340 metres of the pier, between the foreshore and marina entrance, will be reopened for all visitors including pedestrians, swimmers, boaters, and anglers to enjoy.
