New Accessible Vantage Point at Blacksmiths Beach

July 17, 2018

 

The viewing platform at Blacksmiths Beach is undergoing a $90,000 revamp to provide tourists and the community with an accessible viewing platform of the picturesque coastline. Council’s Manager Community Planning, Wes Hain, said the platform has been designed to be accessible to all users, including wheelchair users and people with reduced mobility, and will provide a view of Blacksmiths Beach.


“While access improvements have taken place at many of our Council facilities, the installation of the platform will continue to enhance these improvements for wheelchair users, people with a disability, carers and the elderly,” Mr Hain said.


Connecting to the existing accessible pathway off Maneela Street, the current platform is currently closed while improvement works are carried out, with the new viewing platform expected to reopen later this month.
