At Darlington on Maria Island National Park, Stage 2 of Critical Infrastructure Works will commence on 3 August and be complete by the end of October 2020.
A dedicated service trench down the centre of the road from Darlington to the Jetty and up to the PWS workshop precinct will incorporate water, power and sewage pipes and replaced aged infrastructure. The Penitentiary toilets services trench will run under the road at the rear of the Penitentiary.
The dedicated service corridor is a preferred outcome for heritage protection. Completion of Stage 2 will provide a new pressure sewer system for the public amenities including the re-opening of the jetty toilets.
The road from the Jetty to Darlington will be closed from August to September. A narrow alternative access path will be provided - take care as this may be uneven underfoot.
Luggage trollies will not be available during this period, overnight guests will need to carry their luggage.
The works will progress through Darlington to rear of the Penitentiary during September and October.
There will be large machinery onsite. Visitors can expect noise, dust and ground vibrations Monday to Friday 7am-7pm in the immediate vicinity of the works.
For visitor safety, please adhere to all signs and directions.
