Airlie Beach Foreshore

Stage 1 Upgrade

Location: Airlie Beach, Whitsundays

Client: Whitsunday Regional Council

Summary

Premise provided a concept and detailed design of alterations to the existing Coconut Grove and Ocean Road to enable commencement of the proposed Airlie Beach Foreshore Revitalisation project. The proposed changes saw the extension of Ocean Road to a new cul-de-sac fit for use by coaches, on-street car parking modification, and the relocation of the existing bus/transit terminal.

Premise also facilitated comprehensive stakeholder and community consultation processes in order to ascertain the needs of foreshore users. This led to the development of a new traffic management plan, and bringing forward of the roadworks component of the project to minimise interruption to one of the major Foreshore users, the Lions Airlie Beach Markets.

In order to accommodate the Ocean Road extension, the existing Port of Airlie Sea Wall also required some modification extension. As the lead engineers for the project, Premise provided the following design services:

  • Roadworks and stormwater drainage
  • Services relocation/protection
  • Pedestrian pathways (including disabled access)
  • Off-street car park and loading zone reconfiguration
  • Marine engineering (new sea wall)
  • Flora and fauna surveys
  • Cost estimating
  • Statutory approvals (including Tidal Works Applications)
