Lake Works Underway

1

Earlier this week Ballina Shire Council commenced stage one of planned works to upgrade Lake Ainsworth’s Foreshore.

This stage of works is focusing on the southern precinct and will include formalising car parking, reconstructing the southern road and bitumen sealing Camp Drewe Road. Council anticipates the southern precinct upgrades will be completed by Christmas 2018.

The decision to continue with the Lake Ainsworth development works was decided at an Extraordinary Council Meeting in early September.

During this stage of works, parking will be available on the eastern arm and the grassed parking area opposite the Lake. Traffic control will be in place as required and access to Camp Drewe Road will not be impacted.

‘The foreshore improvement works will be completed across three stages from next week until mid-2019. By completing the upgrade works in stages will help minimise disruptions for our community,’ said Mr John Truman, Manager Civil Services Group, Ballina Shire Council.

Once completed, the $1.7M investment will include additional barbeques, pathways, picnic tables, formalised parking, erosion rehabilitation and landscaping.

    Great that this is underway at last. Thanks to Councillors and staff who’ve put lots of time and attention into this important work.

    Re your penultimate sentence –
    “Once completed, the $1.7M investment will include additional barbeques, pathways, picnic tables, formalised parking, erosion rehabilitation and landscaping.”

    Omitted from this is the improvements to disability access and the safety of the
    vehicle-free pathway in the eastern foreshore. These are very significant positive changes and should not be overlooked.
