The South Burnie Beach area will receive a major facelift with the installation of a new public toilet and change room facility, upgrades to the car park, re-alignment of the Coastal Pathway, and several other conveniences.
The upgrades will include four toilet and change room cubicles, an outdoor beach shower, foot washers, bike racks, drinking fountains (for humans and our beloved pets), landscaping, footpaths and a re-designed and re-sealed car park to increase parking spaces, fix the pot-holes and reduce anti-social behavior.
CBB Contracting have been awarded the construction contract and will begin works after Easter on Tuesday 6 April 2021. The new toilets and change rooms are expected to be open by July, with all of the remaining works planned for completion by the end of October 2021.
Throughout the build; Yachties Sports Bar Cafe will remain open, access to the boat ramps will be maintained and the ramp onto South Burnie Beach will remain open to the public on all weekend and public holidays.
Council has been successful in obtaining a $22,200 grant under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program - round 1 (Australian Government) for the toilets and a $50,000 grant under the Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program (Australian Government) for the carpark.
There will be reduced parking spaces available in the car park and some interruptions to the main beach access will occur at times during the build. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
