Damage to beach access ramp

Thursday, 27 September 2018

The concrete beach access ramp immediately below the Point Lonsdale shopping strip has been damaged during a recent large sea swell, which caused sections of the access ramp to crack and break.

Because the sea wall and associated infrastructure is managed by the State Government, Council has contacted the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to report the damage.

Following their assessment and determination of cost to repair the wall, DELWP will provide advice regarding timing of works.

Council is working with DELWP to undertake the repairs as soon as practicable. In the meantime, a barrier has been erected to prevent pedestrian access to the affected section of the ramp. People are asked to be careful in this area and use another access path to the beach.
