Shoalhaven Heads River Road Foreshore Precinct project
The Shoalhaven Heads River Road Foreshore Precinct project will provide environment and tourism infrastructure that will activate the 1km length of foreshore along the Shoalhaven River.
A mix of Council and crown land, the foreshore area between two open space areas has been subject to ongoing erosion and degradation from recent severe storm and flood events.
It involves reconstruction of the River Road foreshore, including construction of a rock revetment (251m long) to address the erosion and degradation issues and enhance safety, stormwater detention and discharge works including associated pipework, sand nourishment and riverbank revegetation. Tourist infrastructure works will include a new 60m x 2.0m boardwalk, a 2m x 20m viewing platform and foreshore access comprising new access stairs and ramp. It will improve access to and use of existing infrastructure that includes boat ramps, playgrounds, parkland and fishing and boating facilities, connecting two existing open space areas to the east and west.
The project is supported by the Shoalhaven Heads Community Forum and the Shoalhaven Heads Chamber of Commerce & Tourism.
The project is scheduled to be completed in May 2021.
Due to shortage of pipe material the drainage works will commence in 15 November 2020 and be completed prior to Christmas.
Revetment works in beings tendered the tender is expected to close early November 2020 and work is expected to start in January 2021.
