Update on Wearing Street redevelopment

Sand replenishment and soil sampling works will take place at Wearing Street Port Noarlunga on the northern bank of the Onkaparinga River estuary and surrounds.

The Wearing Street river access path and launching areas will be closed for approximately two-to-three days while sand replenishment works are underway.

The craft launching area located on the southern side of the estuary by Saltfleet Street (next to the adventure playground) shall remain open and may be used without restrictions.

Sand replenishment trial

The sand replenishment trial works were considered at the 1 December 2020 meeting of Council’s Strategic Directions Committee to provide improved conditions for watercraft activities in this area.

We anticipate this work will take place during the week of Monday 19 April 2021 depending on weather and tidal conditions.

Once the sand has been placed, we’ll evaluate its effectiveness over time to inform future management of safe river access at this location.

Soil sampling

As part of the Wearing Street development’s detailed design process, approximately 14 boreholes will be drilled at the site to provide important information about soil conditions required to inform engineering designs.

Aboriginal cultural heritage monitors will be present during this process.

About the Wearing Street development

A revised concept plan for Port Noarlunga’s Wearing Street project was approved by Council in December, following a review and consultation process.

It will include parking options along Wearing Street and an upgraded Port Noarlunga Arts Centre car park include hyperlink from article.

The redevelopment also features:

  • new community aquatic accommodation replacing existing aging storage sheds and clubroom
  • an upgraded riverfront public realm including shelters, new public toilet, seating, lawn and planting
  • formalising Mann Street to provide improved access to the precinct and traffic management for residents.

The project will be completed in stages, with works on the Arts Centre carpark to start in April 2021 and upgrades to the aquatic groups’ buildings anticipated to start in Spring.

The project aims to enhance the popular aquatics destination, promoting healthy lifestyle activities in and around the water, and create an iconic destination that encourages locals and visitors to experience Port Noarlunga.
