Frontage and access works within Cronulla Park to compliment the building refurbishment being undertaken by the Surf Club
Reason for works
The objectives of the works are to:
- Improve the interface between the Surf Club building and the public open space in Cronulla Park
- Improve the sense of arrival to the park and the club
- Meet the current Australian Standards
- Protect the historical and environmental significance of the site.
Scope of works
The work for this project includes the construction of:
- A viewing platform with seating, lighted handrails and public artwork
- New pathways to the entry of the renovated Club building and past the RSL Club building
- New staircase giving access to the park utilising sandstone masonry and soft landscaping
- Reconstructed access road down to The Esplanade for club and service vehicles
- Under-grounding the power supply and new precinct lighting
- Retaining walls
- Refurbish the adjoining public amenities building
- Bespoke park fencing
The delivery milestones are:
- Site Establishment – August 2019 commenced
- Practical Completion Park works - July 2020
Public impacts during construction
ALL temporary fencing around the Park & Frontage works site will be removed by the builders 23 July, 2020.
The new stairway will remain fenced off while longer because it is blocked at the lower level by the works compound associated with the public toilet upgrade.
Normal access will resume for the public and businesses deliveries, the new pathways access, and the new viewing deck.
The public amenities will be temporarily closed from Monday 4th November until the end of August 2020.
We appreciate your understanding whilst we work in partnership with the Club to improve these facilities.
This project is jointly funded by Sutherland Shire Council from Section 94 Contributions, with additional contributions from the RSL Club and the NSW Government.
