Anglesea Ramp Completed For Summer

27 December 2016

Works to repair the Anglesea Caravan Park beach access ramp and surrounding land have been completed ahead of schedule and are ready for the summer holidays.

The $100,000 works, funded by the Andrews Labor Government’s Coastal Environments Program and the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee address an immediate visitor risk following rapid coastal erosion.

The early completion is a great result for the many visitors who are about to spend their holidays in Anglesea.

The beach access ramp was repaired to maintain safe pedestrian access to the beach and allows launching of small craft such as kayaks. The works will reduce further erosion and make the area safe and accessible for the community.

The rock revetment was designed by coastal engineers AW Maritime who considered the local cliff geomorphology and sea and wave conditions. The works were delivered by experienced coastal contractors Maw Civil Pty Ltd.

The Labor Government and the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee thank the community for their patience and understanding during construction.

The community will be consulted on longer-term management options for the site in early 2017.

Quotes attributable to Minister for Water Lisa Neville

“It’s great to see the ramp back in action ahead of what will no doubt be another busy summer down at Anglesea and it’s a win for the local community and visitors heading down the coast over the break.”

“These works were essential to ensure public safety near the cliff area following rapid erosion over the past two years.”

“It was critical that we continue to manage community access to these much loved areas of the coastline, and address a public safety issue.”
