Jetty closed for urgent repairs

Whyalla’s fishing jetty will be closed to the public until further notice to allow for repairs to be undertaken.

An inspection of the jetty was carried out in February, and the subsequent report identified restoration works that are required immediately to ensure public safety.

Appropriate signage and fencing will be placed around the jetty area to effectively communicate the closure to all users of the facility.

Works to be undertaken include the replacement of decking along the jetty, as well as repairs to the jetty’s structure.

Whyalla mayor Lyn Breuer said the public’s safety was of utmost importance to the council.

“Recommendations from the report received following the inspection of the jetty in February indicate that there are works that need to be undertaken urgently,” Ms Breuer said.

“As such, the council has decided to close the jetty until these crucial works have been completed to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all users of the facility.”

Immediate works will be undertaken as soon as possible to enable the council to reopen the jetty for public use while additional works are undertaken.

Safe Work SA has also been advised of the council’s intended actions to rectify issues at the jetty.

The council thanks residents for their patience and understanding while these crucial works are being carried out.
