Coffs Jetty To Get Facelift

Coffs Harbour's historic jetty is set to receive some much needed love with a major program of repairs and refurbishment starting April 17.

Sun, sea and surf hit the jetty everyday, something that has effected the structure over time.

Council’s Director Sustainable Infrastructure, Mick Raby said, "the jetty is a grand old icon and although it has aged well, it suffers from the daily effects of sun, sea and surf".

The project will see the replacement of girders and 40 piles and restoration of sections of the timber deck.

“We undertake regular maintenance of the structure, but this time we’re replacing major girders and piles, as well as parts of the main deck, so it’s going to be a pretty big facelift", Mr Raby said.

Work is expected to take six months to complete, but will be finished ahead of the summer holiday season.

The jetty will remain open during the repairs with access via a boardwalk attached to the side of the structure

There will also be some restrictions on swimming at the work site in the interests of public safety.
