The Coffs Harbour Jetty area has finally started to come to life with the completion of early stages of the Jetty4Shores concept plan. Stages 2-4 were officially opened by Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councilor Denise Knight and Luke Hartsuyker, the Federal Member for Cowper on 30th October 2017. “This brand new precinct is a real game changer for the whole Coffs Coast region” said Cr Knight.
The Jetty4Shores has an open plaza area with stages for events and shelters built at the end of Jetty Beach. There are wide terraced steps with pram/wheelchair ramp for direct access to the beach, a board walk along and behind the dunes linking the plaza to the historic jetty and market area. The amenities block has been extended and upgraded to provide facilities for people with severe disabilities.
Luke Hartsuyker said “Without the leadership and commitment of previous and current councilors as well as the overwhelming support of the community we would not now be enjoying this fantastic new regional attraction.”
Behind the scenes, following the announcement of the successful tenderer for Stages 2-4, in April 2017, AJ Pipelines and Construction Pty Ltd commenced work on the site in earnest to meet the tight construction deadline for the project. Having worked closely with AJ Pipelines on numerous projects, Resource Design and Management (RDM) were engaged to provide comprehensive survey support for the project including co-ordination of services and various spatial data sets, machine control guidance, detailed construction set-out and work as executed surveys.
Alan Johnson of AJ Pipelines said “Without RDM’s dedication and timely response to our needs the project would have struggled to meet the project’s deadline.” he went on to say “RDM experience and skills were critical for such a high profile project.”
Following the successful completion of the Jetty4Shore project, RDM have been engaged by AJ Pipelines to provide similar services on a number of other significant projects.
