An update on Metung

Unfortunately the boardwalk didn’t get finished in time for the tourist season but some of it was completed and now the boardwalk reaches almost to Edgewater Terraces.

This part is now completed and is in use.Since I took the last two photos the barriers on the edge of the boardwalk have been installed and this part of the boardwalk is now in full use.  Hopefully it won’t be too long before the remaining part of the boardwalk is finished.

The other work that has been happening in the village is the reopening of the bakery,

This is before it was due to open.  The bakery is flourishing now with the tourist season in full swing.

Unfortunately there has been no further work on the burnt out building.  I guess nothing more will happen until the holiday period is over.  Meanwhile the other businesses in Metung are doing great trade during this time.

Work is underway

Yes, the demolition work is underway on the fire-damaged premises in Metung.  You can see the Lockwood sign in the background and that is where the real estate business has relocated.  The premises were the former Information Centre and a small retail outlet. That means at least one of the businesses affected is now up and operating.

The roof has been removed from the Nautica part of the complex and you can see the extent of the damage.The Bakery still has its roof but I am not sure if that is coming down as well.  The Bakery is relocating to vacant premises across the road.  The shop called Tallowwood used to be in the premises.  It is the white building with the drawn blinds.

It is great to see that things are moving quickly but there is no way it will all be completed in time for the influx of summer tourists.

The Metung Community is hoping that at least the bakery will be operating.
