Gallipoli Access 2011

29 June 2011

Over the coming months, a program of works will be conducted along Anzac Cove including the construction of a concrete gravity sea wall along the back of the beach through Anzac Cove which will protect the area and nearby headland cemeteries from the impact of the sea. The surface of the road above Anzac Cove will also be upgraded with proper drainage installed, and the surrounding land side slope will be landscaped.

These works will be carried out between July and December 2011. During this period there will be some disruption to access to the Anzac Commemorative site and surrounding roads.
