Remedial works to Regatta Point foreshore

09/05/2017

Remedial works to the foreshore at Regatta Point in Strahan have begun.


Repairs to erosion on the Crown land foreshore at Regatta Point adjoining the ABT Railway car park started last week.


Crown Land Services manager Kathryn Clark said remedial and stabilisation works to the foreshore were needed after years of high tides and floods have impacted the area, causing significant erosion.


"These improvements will ensure the foreshore can continue to operate as a popular destination and significantly improve the amenity of the area for locals and tourists alike," Ms Clark said.


Tasmanian company GRADCO Pty Ltd was awarded the contract to undertake the remedial works.


Works are expected to be completed before the end of May 2017.
