The damaged Bellambi rock pool

WOLLONGONG City Council will begin work in early May to repair damage to Bellambi Rock Pool sustained during storms in June 2016.

Repairs to the pool will include the removal of damaged concrete panels, repairs to a crack in the pool concourse, and repairs to the southern entrance of the pool. The affected area will be fenced during work. The pool will be closed for up to 10 days while work is done on the pool entrance, but will remain open for public access at other times.

Council will also repair the beach access stairway north of the pool to address damage to the bottom footing of the stairway. The stairs will be closed to the public during works.

Works are expected to be completed by the end of June, tide and weather conditions permitting. For more information contact Council’s Customer Service on (02) 4227 7111.
