Yay, after months of refurb work the Shark Rock Pier will be open to the public again this arvo (Tuesday). The iconic PE landmark had been seriously in need of some TLC for a number of years and finally the budget became available to give her a facelift.
The ou's from Newport Plant Hire and Techni Civils got her looking spic 'n span again. They replaced all the timber on the pier, as well as repairing/replacing the galvanised steel stanchions. The middle timbers were upgraded to a polymer concrete insert and all the lighting got fixed up.
So basically she's as good as new now, lekker!
Head down, buy a soft serve, and take a walk to the end of the pier. Cos that's what piers are for!
