Frankston Pier Upgrades Complete

September 2020

Significant upgrades to Frankston Pier are now complete with a newly improved structure, public access out onto the bay and sweeping views of Frankston waterfront and the city skyline. As part of the State Government's $670,000 Better Recreational Facilities program, the upgrade includes a new disability compliant ramp to a lower landing on the southern side of the pier, allowing everyone to enjoy the water.

Other new features of the works include:
- Additional berthing opportunities for vessels through the extension of the pier low landings on both north and south by 7.2m. 
- Additional lighting and ladders. 
- Complete reconstruction of the pier head, including new piles and fenders.
- Replacement of 75 piles along the pier approach, in addition to the pier head replacement works.

Initially constructed at its current site in 1863, the pier plays a central role in community life and is an important focal point and recreational space for the local community members and visitors. A popular spot for fishing, the pier is within casting distance to an artificial reef, home to a wide variety of fish.

Funded through the Better Recreational Facilities initiative, the project was managed by Parks Victoria as local port manager.
