Port Noarlunga jetty divers stairs project update
Published on 20 February 2020
Our contractor has completed piling work in readiness for the stair installation.
The next phase of work is to prepare the jetty and pile connections above and below the water surface. To undertake this work the jetty will be closed from 6:30am Friday 21 February until late afternoon, and again from 6:30am Monday 24 February from 6:30am until late afternoon. An exclusion zone will be in put in place around the work area while works are undertaken. The jetty will be open outside of these times unless additional, unforeseen works are required.
Stair installation is planned for Wednesday through Friday 26th to 28th of February, subject to favourable weather and tidal conditions. During the stair installation the jetty will be closed from 6:30am on these days to late afternoon and an exclusion zone around the work area put in place. The jetty will be opened outside of these where it is considered is safe to do so.
In order to ensure public safety around the jetty and new stairs installation, the contractors have already shut down a 40m section at the western end of the jetty. This is the same area where fishing from the jetty is prohibited.
This will remain closed for the duration of the project as the handrails have been removed in the works area. This section of the jetty will also be used as a laydown areas for equipment and materials. Signs and barriers are in place advising the closure of this section of the jetty.
The jetty will be opened when contractors are off site, except for the section currently closed in preparation for the stairs.
As always this timing is subject to favourable conditions.

- Friday 21 Feb – Jetty closed 6:30am until late afternoon
- Monday 24 Feb – Jetty closed 6:30am until late afternoon
