Franklin Harbour jetty temporary closure for improvement works

In case you missed it, improvement works to Franklin Harbour jetty on the Eyre Peninsula are underway and a temporary closure is in place.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advised of the temporary closure in mid-June.

“In consideration for public safety, the Franklin Harbour jetty will be temporarily closed from early July 2018 until early September 2018,” a spokesperson said.

“These works are required to maintain the jetty’s long-term structural integrity, enhance public facilities and continue to provide a safe jetty for all users.”

Work on the jetty will be undertaken between 7am and 7pm.

DPTI also advised while some noise can be expected during the works, every effort would be made to minimise the impacts.

“Access to properties and businesses near the jetty will be maintained at all times,” the spokesperson said.

“By maintaining the long-term structural integrity of our jetties, we can ensure they remain open for all to use for many years to come.

“DPTI appreciates the community’s patience and cooperation while works are carried out.”

The project forms part of the South Australian Government’s $3.4 million Marine Jetties program.
