BEACH access via the stairs at D.H. Lawrence Reserve, in Craig Street, Thirroul will be closed until further notice after Wollongong City Council found that a rock platform has become dangerously insecure.
A Council spokesperson said during a recent inspection of the beach access, staff found the large rock platform at the base of stairs has become unstable.
“This is caused by erosion of its underlying support due to wave action,” the spokesperson said.
“To ensure public safety Council has fenced off the stairs to prevent people accessing the beach and rock platform at this location.”
Council have advised beachgoers to use the alternate access to McCauley’s Beach via Corbett Avenue.
In the meantime, Council will be investigating options for a long-term solution to maintain access via the park.
