Visitors to a popular Port Macquarie beach can look forward to improved accessibility and safety due to a stage one seawall replacement project.
Works to replace part of the Flynns Beach seawall are proposed to start in mid-2018.
The first stage of the seawall replacement is open for tender submission.
It includes the design and replacement of the seawall, about 80 metres in length, between the surf club/kiosk and southern beach parking area.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council acting director Dan Croft said these proposed works would improve public safety and accessibility to the beach and include the construction of a new seawall structure; vehicle and mobility access ramp; beach access stairs; footpaths and handrails.
“Further work to repair the remaining length of seawall and upgrade of surrounding amenities will be addressed as part of the Flynns Beach Master Plan which is currently in progress and planned for public exhibition in the coming months,” he said.
Mr Croft said more details on stage one, including concept designs, would be available on selection of a successful tenderer, which was expected to be decided at the council’s meeting in February.
