Airlie Beach Foreshore construction tender awarded
Media release 8 August 2018
The Airlie Beach Foreshore Revitalisation will begin later this month, with the construction tender awarded to Paynter Dixon Queensland at today’s Whitsunday Regional Council meeting in Cannonvale.
The $6.3 million upgrade includes a brand new 10.5m tall playground, 65 extra sealed carparks, more seating and shade umbrellas, new sound stage, refurbished amenities block, extra landscaping and a 3m wide beachfront path connecting the foreshore to the Airlie Beach Lagoon.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said the upgrade would encompass the Foreshore area between the Sailing Club and Fairy Tree Park.
“This hugely exciting project will create a high-quality seaside experience for all our domestic and international visitors to Airlie Beach,” he said.
“The Airlie Beach Foreshore is unique and the revitalisation will further enhance the area for our visitors and be a brand-new space for residents to enjoy.”
The works are expected to begin from late August and be completed by the end of February 2019, weather permitting.
Construction work will take place Monday to Saturday, between 6.30am and 6.30pm.
During the revitalisation works the Airlie Beach markets will be temporarily moved to Council-owned parcels of land along Coconut Grove, across the road from their current location.
Project has concluded.
