Work on a project set to transform the Safety Bay and Shoalwater foreshore in the coming decades has started.

The City of Rockingham has started construction of the Shoalwater Reserve activity node, located on Arcadia Drive, and has revealed what the project will look like when finalised in September.

Works include reconstruction of the footpath south of the carpark, resurfacing the carpark, a new beach access ramp, a new play area and landscaping.

Mayor Barry Sammels said the project would enhance Shoal-water Reserve while maintaining its character.

“The focus of the Shoalwater activity node project is to enhance the foreshore experience for the local and wider community, while also aiming to attract more visitors to its unique attributes,” Cr Sammels said.

“This project supports the aspirations developed in the City’s strategic community plan which include planning for future generations, growth in the community, as well as pursuing tourism and economic development.”

The carpark and toilet block at Shoalwater Reserve will be closed during building works by Phase3 Landscape Construction.
