Princes Pier

Major Projects Victoria have recently updated their website to reflect the work currently underway at Princes Pier. You can access the very interesting images and most recent news from here.
Major Projects Victoria are delivering the refurbishment of Princes Pier which includes restoring the concrete deck to 196m seaward of the Gatehouse, and refurbishing the 1934 Gatehouse.

This picture is taken on Sandridge Beach to the west of Princes Pier. The timber wall from east to west records the names of Port Melbourne's historic piers in chronological order from Liardet's jetty onwards. The wall, made from recovered pier timbers, also records the timbers from which the piers were made, and the engineers who designed them.
