About this project

Council recently repaired steps at Lake Sambell near the Caravan Park that were badly damaged during a major storm event.

Initially, repair works were deferred and path users were re-directed around the site while the scope of works was assessed. In the longer term, capital funds will be required to carry out more substantive works to improve safety and to protect the path from similar damage during future storms.

There is currently design work being undertaken to look at future improvements to the path around the eastern side of the lake.

The repairs were not covered under the Natural Disaster Financial Assistance funds and have been funded from the maintenance budget.

Why is this project being undertaken?

To ensure public safety with better step design and the addition of hand-rails.

What is happening and when?

Works commenced early December and were recently fully completed.
