No swimming or diving beneath St Leonards pier or piles

In the interest of public safety Parks Victoria recommends that divers, snorkelers and swimmers do not dive beneath the pier and its piles.

This is due to observed deterioration of concrete on the underside of the deck of St Leonards Pier.  This deterioration can result in possible concrete spalling into the water.
Signage will be displayed on site to notify members of the public of this hazard.
Parks Victoria will continue to monitor the condition of the pier and advise stakeholders of any further change in condition.
