Port Augusta’s Eastside jetty demolition is well underway and the works are expected to be completed by the end of February.
A small section of the 138-year-old jetty will be retained which will provide a viewing deck and signage which will highlight the significance of the jetty to Port Augusta.
Port Augusta Mayor Brett Benbow says from the very beginning Council recognised the importance of the jetty to the Port Augusta community and set aside timber for community use.
Several of the timbers will be repurposed for community enjoyment and the Council will be seeking community input in the coming months as part of the foreshore redevelopment.
The total cost of the demolition works has reached $103,000 less than half of the original budget of $250,000.
