Rye: Foreshore Rejuvenation

  • Project value$300,000

The goal of this project is to improve the quality of the environment and the visitor experience at Rye Foreshore. The scope of works includes revegetation and stabilisation of the dune area, construction of a timber boardwalk and an architect-designed decorative concrete plaza area at the Pier with stunning Bay views and seating areas.

The design of the improvement works has been completed by open space specialists Jeavons Landscape Architects.

Pedestrian access to the pier will be maintained during construction. Works will be scheduled to avoid the busiest periods over summer.

Project update July 2019

All works to the East of the Rye Pier were completed by December 2018, including the board walk, beach access ramps, exposed aggregate concrete paths, illuminated bollards, rain gardens and sand relocation. This included a community planting day incorporating more than 2000 plants and 15 volunteers.

The section of works located between the Rye Pier and the new boat ramp is being redesigned due to significant erosion of the foreshore. Works are planned for delivery later in 2019, once the new design is complete, materials have been procured and the contractor is ready.
