Workshops Pier Closure

Workshops Pier is currently closed to pedestrians and vehicles in the interest of public safety.
 
Working together with the site lessee we have taken necessary safety precautions by closing Workshops Pier at the Seaworks complex in Williamstown, following assessments that identified it was at risk of failure.
 
Further investigations are required to determine the extent of deterioration and consider the next steps. Until then, public safety is our priority, and the pier will remain closed to vehicles and the general public.
 
We are working with the lessee and berth holders to minimise the impact of the closure and facilitate authorised access where safe to do so.
