Wharves to be removed

28 Apr 2015

Work to remove sections of collapsing wharves at North Wharf will begin at the end of this month.

According to Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson, parts of the old wharves in Docklands have reached the end of their life and are prone to collapsing.

Mr Wilson said 15,000sqm of concrete and timber wharf will be removed over the next four to six months.

“The works will be conducted from the land, not within the Yarra River’s navigable water zone, and are not anticipated to disrupt boats,” Mr Wilson said.

According to Mr Wilson, residents and workers may experience minor noise and dust disturbance during the works.

The demolition work at North Wharf wharves will be followed by further wharf removal in other parts of Docklands.

“The eastern part of North Wharf was recently demolished by Lend Lease and is currently being replaced with the new wharf structure,” Mr Wilson said.

“Places Victoria plans to demolish the old concrete wharves in NewQuay West later this year, subject to planning and Heritage Victoria approvals.”
