Major works to repair and renew the seawall at Balmoral Beach are expected to continue until February 2014. Visitors will notice the hoarding on sections of the beach and also on the foreshore area opposite Hunter Park, where equipment is being stored over the life of the project. At a cost of approximately $800,000, around 750 metres of the sea wall is being progressively repaired and rejuvenated between the Bathers Pavilion and Balmoral Baths. The work also includes restoration of the stormwater culvert adjacent to Raglan Street. Every effort is being made to minimise impact on bathers and other users of the area while these essential works are underway.

Further north along Balmoral Beach, renovation works on the Clem Morath Pool have been completed at a cost of $70,000. Major footpath, kerb and gutter and road renewal works are now also complete along the northern end of The Esplanade.

At Clifton Gardens, the latest round of jetty renewal works has been completed, partly funded by a grant of $60,000 from the Better Boating Program.
