The Wagaitear - June 2014 DEPARTMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE MANDORAH JETTY, WAGAIT BEACH CAR PARK UPGRADE The continuing work on the Mandorah Jetty car park upgrade is anticipated to be complete by the end of July 2014. During works, all cars should be parked in the temporary car park located approximately 200 m away from the jetty. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to take care in the area, observe all signage in place and to park vehicles in the designated temporary car park area only. In the interest of public safety, the shoulder area of the existing road will be re-compacted and maintained for use as the designated walkway to the temporary car park area. Temporary lighting has been installed in the temporary car park area. Additional lighting have been provided for the walkway from the jetty to the temporary car park area. Once complete, the car park will have 133 parks and include parking areas for buses, cars, cars with trailers, motorcycles, bicycles and allocated disabled parking bays.
