Accessible view for Glenelg Beach

Access points and walkways onto Glenelg Beach are being upgraded and will include the construction of a fully accessible beach ramp next to Glenelg Jetty, City of Holdfast Bay Council has announced.

Construction is due to start this week on the first three of six access points which are located between the jetty and the Broadway Kiosk.

The works will consist of both ramps and stairways which will improve accessibility to the beach for members of the community, have greater ability to cope with fluctuating sand levels and reduce maintenance requirements for Council, it said in a statement.

“Once the six walkways have been upgraded, work will then start on the construction of the beach access ramp next to Glenelg Jetty.”

“The ramp will be Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant and will provide year-round wheelchair access to Glenelg beach,” Council said.
