Runaway Bay saw a lot of activity across the beginning of this year with Pier A being completely rebuilt from damage is sustained by ex-tropical cyclone Oswald on the last Australia Day long weekend.
Anyone who visited or worked at the Marina got front row seats of the process involved with the removal of the damaged pier and installation of the new pier, it was quite a sight to see!
In December last year we saw the pylons replaced with the remainder of the work being carried through February of 2014. The new pier is made from far superior product being foam encased by concrete for the floatation and a concrete deck all connected and held together by timber whalers. It will also have new services, pipes and cabling.
The new pier was the final stage of the rebuilding of the entire marina which commenced in 2006.
