A crane is lifting a walkway into place on Urangan Pier
UPDATE: A crane is lifting a 1.5 tonne walkway onto the side of the Urangan Pier to allow pedestrians to bypass the work site as a $5 million refurbishment gets under way.
The work is expected to take three years to complete but will not be undertaken during the summer months to avoid the storm season.
The pier will remain closed on Monday while the walkway is installed and is expected to reopen on Tuesday.
EARLIER: The Urangan Pier will be closed on Monday as work continues on a $5 million refurbishment of 660m.
Workers will install a steel gantry extending off the side of the pier for pedestrians to bypass the work site.
Fraser Coast councillor Trevor McDonald said the pier needed to close so close the pier totally so cranes could lift the 17m walkway into place.
He said the project would go on for three years and the walkway was the best the council could provide.
