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.

Construction is going ahead

The latest project in Metung is the extension of the boardwalk into Chinamans Creek.  The work started in August just before we left for our holiday overseas and it is now evident that some work has been done.  I don’t know if it is going to be finished by mid December as is the anticipated finish date on the Council notices.

Apparently there was a delay as permission was required for the removal of some native vegetation.

Keeping our fingers crossed that it will all be finished before the busy Christmas period.

Happenings in Metung

The most recent upgrade to happen in the village will be the extension of the boardwalk on the edge of Bancroft Bay.  The boardwalk is to be extended to Chinaman’s Creek.  The first sign of action is the erection of some temporary fencing and a sign stating what it is for.

When this is completed it will give pedestrian access all the way to Chinaman’s Creek.  It will be great if it is completed by November in plenty of time for the influx of summer tourists.
