Works begin on Central Pier

Works begin on Central Pier Image

By Kate Mani

Structural investigation and infrastructure work has begun on Dockland’s historic Central Pier as part of a Development Victoria project.

The works, which received Heritage and Project approval in May, aim to ensure the long-term life of the pier and facilitate greater water-based transport options in Docklands.

Development Victoria’s general manager Simon Wilson described Central Pier as the “heart” of Docklands and said that the first step in restoring and retaining the structure is an assessment of its current state.

“We are investigating the structural condition of Central Pier so we know what kind of structural works may need to be done,” he said.

Changes will include the relocation of the Super Yacht Pontoon on Central Pier to Harbour Esplanade, to allow the service of ferries, cruising boats and super yachts and respond to Docklands community requests for a greater range of water-based transport options.

The reconstructions have commenced with divers assessing the pier from underneath, while a large barge and crane will also be onsite.
