Premier attraction gets facelift

Nambucca Head’s premier tourist attraction, the V-Wall, is getting a facelift.

Nambucca Shire Council is renewing the concrete footpath at the large wall as well as removing the existing overhead lighting and replacing it with solar bollards.

At the moment the V-Wall is partially closed to pedestrian access at the far end of the large wall (the one that heads out towards the open sea) while the concrete pour is underway.

Other sections will then be progressively closed as the pours continue back towards the carpark.

Assistant General Manager - Engineering Services, Paul Gallagher, said the pours were being done in 200m lengths to minimise the closure time.

Due to the narrow width of the path there is no space for pedestrian access and for the sake of safety it will remain closed until the pours are complete.

A electronic message board at the entrance will keep residents informed of progress.

* There is further funding in the draft 2018/19 budget to continue to do work on the small wall
