Dear Scotland Island Residents

As stage one of the Church Point Upgrade is about to start, we ask that you kindly share this update with your members.

Between July 2016 and April 2017, we will undertake reclamation works and build a new sea wall, main road and walkway.

Work to date

Over the past few months we have worked with our contractor, Ward Civil and Environmental Engineering, to prepare for the construction and finalise designs. Work is also underway to approve details of the construction design and to develop aesthetics features, which is being done collaboratively with community representatives through an Aesthetics Advisory Committee.

Works are almost complete on the construction of a temporary wharf that will offset commuter boat tie-ups during stage one and stage two works.

What’s next?

We expect to begin setting up the construction site towards the end of July although this is subject to final authority approvals. Initially this will include the contractor offices, environmental controls and temporary services. Related pedestrian, boating and traffic arrangements will also be made at this stage.

Refer to the attached map or our website to view the location map, which highlights various aspects of the site.

We will make every endeavour to minimise inconvenience during construction and keep you up to date along the way. More details will be shared on our website and via community updates. You are also welcome to make contact with me any time.

Thank you for your patience while we prepare for construction.
