Scarborough beachfront forward works

  • Scarborough

The forward works are complete at Scarborough foreshore, preparing for building the new public spaces, recreation facilities, the new Scarboro Surf Life Saving Club and City of Stirling Beach Services.

Works undertaken over winter and spring 2016 included:

  • Bulk earthworks and excavation works
  • Removal of old buildings including the Maureen Grierson Community Centre and Surf Life Saving Club
  • Closure of some car parks and pathways to make way for new and improved facilities
  • Additional fencing north and south of the amphitheatre which will remain in place until late 2017
  • Sunset Hill constructed and opened mid December

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 tender for the Scarborough Foreshore Public Domain Head Contractor works include CPB Contractors, Ertech and Georgiou. The works tender is expected to be awarded in January 2017 and the successful contractor will commence works in the coming months.
