Events and Recreation councillor Darren Everard said there had been ongoing maintenance issues with the boardwalk.

"Council staff has replaced boards and screws and laminated joists in a bid to keep it open," he said.

"But a recent engineering report indicated the boardwalk is not structurally sound enough to be used by the public so it has been closed."
