The Bunbury City Council has given the thumbs-up to the Koombana Bay foreshore transformation project, with Ertech Holdings to deliver the first stage of the $10.8 million development. The project is going to be delivered in three stages.
Key facts about the Koombana Bay revitalisation project include:
Access to the beach will be limited during construction and at times it will be fully closed to the public
Access to the Dolphin Discovery Centre and Koombana Bay Sailinig Club will be maintained
Construction of 100 extra parking bays, taking the total to almost 400
Improved traffic access, including left turn only from Anchorage Cove to Koombana Drive
A pedestrian bridge over The Plug that links the CBD and Koombana Bay
Revamped kiosk and public amenities
Improved beach access, including disabled access
Amphitheatre and shaded areas
Coastal sea wall to address erosion issues
Extensive landscaped areas overlooking the beach, including the relocation of car parks closer to Koombana Drive
Removal of the old train line
Construction of an accessible playground
“It is an exciting time for the Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront project, with forward works for the Dolphin Discovery Centre redevelopment under way and work on the Koombana Bay foreshore soon to begin.
“In previous years, we’ve seen areas such as Marlston Hill transformed and benefit Bunbury. This is the next step in taking the city forward,” said South West Development Commission Assistant Director Infrastructure Ashley Clements.
Work is set to commence after Easter and is expected to be completed by early December of this year.
