Funding Announced for Wynyard Waterfront Seawall

Work will begin within months to reconnect Wynyard’s waterfront with the Hodgman Liberal Government delivering $828,000 in funding to rebuild a seawall and to construct a new boardwalk in partnership with the Waratah-Wynyard Council.

“This $1.7 million project will once again allow locals and visitors alike to walk on the paths through the town’s picturesque Richard Gutteridge Gardens, past the wharf and to the yacht club and beyond,” the office of Will Hodgman MP, Premier of Tasmania, said in its release.

“Importantly, it will also help to realize the wider Wynyard Waterfront and Environs Masterplan, which will make this an even more special place to visit.”

The existing footpath along the aged and degraded seawall in front of the Waterfront Motel has been closed for some time, forcing people wanting to walk between the wharf and the yacht club and its surrounds to take a detour.

The new seawall and boardwalk will reconnect the two precincts, and provide more visually appealing infrastructure on the waterfront, according to the announcement.

The funding announced today will be delivered under the Liberal Government’s Community Infrastructure Fund.
