The completion of works at Austinmer Ocean Pool draws ever-closer, with more work scheduled to begin on July 9 when low daytime tides are forecast.
A spokesperson for Wollongong Council says provided these low tides are joined by low seas and swell, the contractor will grout infill around the pre-cast panels that have been lifted into place on the eastern wall of the southern pool.
“This will ensure the panels remain in place when large seas hit the wall,” he says. “To ensure public safety, we’ve kept the southern pool closed until this work can be completed, while the northern pool remains open.
“Once the grouting is finished, all that remains fro be done are minor repair works to the central promenade and within the north east corner of the southern pool.”
