Work set to start in July on Elizabeth Bay Marina safety upgrade
29 June 2017
Stephen Edwards Construction has been selected as the preferred tenderer for the safety upgrade of the Elizabeth Bay marina.
Roads and Maritime Services Executive Director Maritime Angus Mitchell said Stephen Edwards Construction was selected from the five companies which were registered for the work under the NSW Government’s prequalification panel.
“The NSW Government has provided $6.5 million for the marina upgrade which will start with the demolition of the existing facility which has failed a structural safety assessment,” Mr Mitchell said.
“Once the existing facility has been demolished a new marina will be built to all relevant building code and disability access standards and will include a jetty, a pontoon for kayaks and paddle boards, small café and chandlery.
“Work will start on the marina upgrade project in July, although a specific start date and work schedule has yet to be finalised.
“Roads and Maritime Services will notify the community in advance of work starting on the site.
“During work, there will be some temporary changed traffic conditions and closure of two parking spaces from Ithica Road car park for around five months to allow for materials to be delivered to the site for the project to be completed in the most efficient time frame.
“Work will be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm and on Saturdays between 7am and 1pm. Work will take about eight months to complete, weather permitting.
“There will be no night work and while some work will be noisy, all efforts will be made to reduce the impact of this noise on the nearby community.
“Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience during this important marina safety upgrade.”
