Upgrading piers and jetties
The Victorian Government has committed $24.4 million to upgrading and maintaining key jetties and piers across Victoria.
These projects form a key part of the $328.4 million Victorian Government investment in critical freight, boating, public transport and roads maintenance, which will create or support more than 600 jobs as we recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
The jetty and pier projects include:
- $3.2 million for upgrades and repairs to Rye Pier, Port Welshpool Marginal Wharf, Portland Trawler Wharf pontoon and Tooradin Jetty
- $11.6 million for upgrades and maintenance of piers in Port Phillip, including Altona, Middle Brighton, Queenscliff South Piers, and the demolition of the inner section of the old Flinders Jetty in Western Port
- $9.6 million upgrade of Portarlington Pier.
|Tooradin Jetty||This project has been completed and involved demolishing and rebuilding the old timber jetty and replacing the existing lower landing with an all-abilities access floating pontoon. The new jetty makes it safer and more accessible for commercial operators, boaters, anglers, and visitors to enjoy the water.|
|Rye Pier||This project involves undertaking repairs to improve access on the Pier.|
|Port Welshpool Marginal Wharf||This project involves rebuilding the timber deck and associated substructure within the loading and unloading area.|
|Portland Trawler Wharf pontoon||This project involves installing floating pontoons for finger jetties and extending the existing walkway.|
|Altona Pier||Public consultation on design options for the future pier closed in August 2020 with over 1,200 submissions received. Parks Victoria is working closely with Hobsons Bay City Council to confirm the preferred option and resolve local heritage concerns.|
|Middle Brighton Pier||This project involves repairing concrete piles and crossheads and replacing some deck planks on the 1977 section of the pier.|
|Queenscliff South Pier||This project involves structural repair and restoration of lifeboat shed.|
|Flinders Jetty||This project scope is being developed.|
|Portarlington Pier||This project involves constructing a new covered walkway and groyne, reconstructing the pier head, and demolishing the old pier.|
Works on these projects are set to start in the next 12 months and were prioritised based on where upgrades were needed the most and ready to be delivered.
