RUSSELL JETTY PROGRESS ON ISLAND READY FOR MARCH MOON KING TIDE MOVE! Work on the new jetty site for Russell Island is moving along at some pace. Whilst the structure is being finalised at Thornlands on the mainland, contractors The Jetty Specialists have been preparing the Russell Island new jetty footings and foreshore. Member for Redlands, Kim Richards, says piling is well underway at Russell Island. ”This is preparatory work for the installation of the new jetty. “These works need to be completed in readiness for the big move of the new superstructure and pontoons. “These will be floated over from Thornlands in late March. “This will coincide with a full moon and a king tide,” Kim Richards told The Friendly Bay Islander. She said the works on the jetties by the contractors had been ‘extremely efficient’. She said part of the old structure would include repurposing for recreational use such as fishing and mooring. The large Russell Island jetty will be followed by a similar sized jetty for Macleay Island and then the slightly smaller structures for Lamb and Karragarra Islands.
