Green light for Central Pier

28 Feb 2018

Green light for Central Pier Image

An infrastructure project undertaken by Development Victoria at Central Pier late last year has recommended an ongoing maintenance program for the heritage-listed structure.

Some 1000 piles were tested to assess its future. In the process, the western end of the pier was physically separated to prevent unauthorised access to the structurally unsound western tip.

The project also included the relocation of the Super Yacht Pontoon from Central Pier to Harbour Esplanade.

Development Victoria’s general manager precincts, Simon Wilson, said the investigative works recommended an ongoing maintenance program to ensure the pier’s structural integrity for its current use, as well as taking into consideration future development opportunities.

In addition, he said, relocation of the Super Yacht Pontoon had resulted in an increase in water-based activities, including the successful launch of Port Phillip Ferries’ new vessel and services from Harbour Esplanade earlier this year.

The results indicated there were structural elements of Central Pier which required ongoing maintenance.

“There are sections of Central Pier which require attention and Development Victoria is working closely with the current tenants and boat operators to manage this process,” Mr Wilson said.

The maintenance works on Central Pier will start this month, with most of the work being conducted under the pier. 

Ongoing monitoring will also form part of this project. 

Development Victoria advises residents, commuters and users of Central Pier to take note of contractor signage and access instructions during the maintenance works
