The much-awaited works have started on Macleay Island, promising to bring new car parking spaces, boat/trailer parking spaces and a new boat ramp.
The work as initially given the green light by the Redland City Council on Nov 06, 2013, stating:
Today’s decision means Council can proceed to finalise necessary State Government development permits, expected by mid 2014, to allow for project construction.
Works will commence in 2014-15 and subject to final design, will provide up to 89 new parking spaces, comprising 68 car spaces, two disabled spaces and 11 car and trailer spaces.
It’s been a long road, but the work has finally begun.
At the moment, there are warnings signs everywhere, due to the asbestos removal, and even a few ‘air quality’ meters, monitoring the level of contamination in the air.
