Scarborough beachfront forward works

  • Scarborough

The Scarborough forward works package is preparing the beachfront for construction of the future public spaces and facilities. 

Works are scheduled late May with completion in spring 2016 and include:

  • Bulk earthworks and excavation works
  • Removal of old buildings including the Maureen Grierson Community Centre and Surf Life Saving Club
  • Closure to some car parks and pathways to make way for new and improved facilities

Access to the beachfront will be impacted from May until spring 2016 as heavy machinery undertake works:

  • Foreshore open space and beach access pathways between Manning Street and Brighton Road will be closed until spring/summer 2016
  • Road closures with diversions in place
  • Works will be undertaken between 7am - 7pm Mondays through to Saturdays
  • Some minor vibrations, noise and dust in the immediate vicinity may occur as works are undertaken to create the new public spaces, including City of Stirling's drainage works near Manning Street. 
  • Additional fencing north and south of the amphitheatre will remain in place until late 2017

Visitors travelling by car, foot and bike are strongly advised to access Scarborough Beach from Manning Street or Brighton Road. While works are underway there will still be around 1,000 parking bays available on the upper and lower concourses, plus additional parking at Wilson Parking on Manning Street and under the Rendezvous Hotel.

The list of tenderers for the Scarborough Foreshore Public Domain Head Contractor works include CPB Contractors, Ertech and Georgiou. The civil and landscaping works tender is expected to be awarded by the end of August 2016 and it's anticipated the successful contractor will commence works in October 2016.
