With work almost wrapped up at Austinmer, attention has been turned to Wombarra Rock Pool, which is still closed to swimmers.
A large amount of seaweed has recently been removed so workers can put in the finishing touches.
A spokesperson for Wollongong Council says the project includes the installation of pre-cast concrete panels, repairs to the pool walls, the construction of a new access ramp and a handrail.
“We’re on track to reopen the pool before the end of the year,” she says. ” In the meantime the pool is closed and we’re are asking people to stay out of it as it isn’t safe for swimming.”
