Fencing upgrades have now been completed at the popular 3 tier car park in Jan Juc, Torquay.
The car park at Jan Juc Beach has received a $16,000 face lift with new cypress posts and long-life wire installed to replace the worn treated pine fencing.
Great Ocean Road Coast Coastal Reserves Manager Caleb Hurrell said the new fencing was a great improvement to the area.
“The fencing upgrades complement the style of the adjacent 3 tier lookout fencing and improves the area’s aesthetic appeal.
“The fence also provides important protection for the native coastal vegetation between each level of the car park,” he said.
Surfing Victoria’s Operations Manager Peter Murphy said the new fencing added the final touch to the Jan Juc upgrades.
“We hold a lot of events at Jan Juc and the new toilet facilities, resurfacing of the car park and now the upgraded fencing has really given this area a face lift.
“The fencing creates a great barrier between the surfers and the revegetation areas, which helps us protect the area as much as possible,” he said.
The Jan Juc fencing upgrade is one of the many coastal projects the Great Ocean Road Coast is completing before the busy summer season.
