Harbour Boulevard update, and closure of Bass Point Tourist Road

The construction of the Harbour Boulevard / Shellharbour Road / Addison Street intersection has progressed well through late July and August to date with the road now formed and kerb largely installed. 

Unfortunately however, we have recently encountered some unexpected site issues that will cause a delay to the program for completion. The revised target date for opening the intersection is around Friday 28th September 2018. We will provide an update as we get closer to the completion date and have more certainty. We will work closely with our contractor and RMS to complete the works earlier than this if at all possible.

The southern extension of Harbour Boulevard is also under construction and will intersect with Bass Point Tourist Road just south of the new boat harbour entrance. This portion of Harbour Boulevard is on track for completion in early September and will be opened to the public at the same time as the northern intersection with Shellharbour Road and Addison Street is opened.

The central portion of Bass Point Tourist Road will be closed when the Harbour Boulevard connections to Shellharbour Road and Bass Point Tourist Road are completed and opened to traffic. This will enable the construction of future subdivision stages both north and south of the boat harbour entrance, and removal of the existing road pavement and culverts to enable completion of the boat harbour entrance works. The South Beach carpark and The Shallows carpark will still be accessible from either end of Bass Point Tourist Road during this period.

In summary, Friday 28th September 2018 is our target date to:

  • Open the Harbour Boulevard / Shellharbour Road / Addison Street intersection;
  • Open the southern extension of Harbour Boulevard to connect with Bass Point Tourist Road just south of the boat harbour entrance; and
  • Close the central portion of Bass Point Tourist Road.

The plan below shows how the road network will be configured when these works are completed.

We appreciate your continued patience as we complete these important road projects, and look forward to opening the new entrance to The Waterfront, Shell Cove.
