Construction begins on the Shoalhaven River Road Foreshore
October 9, 2020

Shoalhaven City Council has today commenced work on the next stage in revitalising the Shoalhaven River Road foreshore. The project will provide environment and tourism infrastructure including a new boardwalk, viewing platform, and improved access to existing boat ramps, playgrounds, parkland and fishing and boating facilities.

The Shoalhaven Heads River Road Foreshore Precinct project was awarded $1.213 million from the NSW Government’s Restart NSW program, specifically the Regional Growth Environment and Tourism Fund. Shoalhaven City Council has contributed a further $873,776 to this project.

Shoalhaven City Council's Mayor, Amanda Findley advised “this is an important project for our community, for both the environment and for tourism.  

“The River Road drainage improvement work is scheduled to commence from early October 2020. Foreshore precinct construction and associated works will continue through 2020 and the project is scheduled to be completed by mid-2021, weather permitting.”

Member for Kiama, Gareth Ward highlighted that “the foreshore area has been subject to ongoing erosion and degradation from recent severe storm and flood events.

“The Shoalhaven Heads River Road Foreshore Precinct project will include works that will address the erosion and degradation issues as well as consolidate and improve the stormwater detention and discharge outlets.
