Notice of Service Change - July 17, 2019
HALKETT BAY AND VAUCROFT PORTS APPROACHES CLOSED TO VEHICLES
In early 2019, the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) undertook a load rating assessment on SCRD Ports. An assessment by professional engineers was completed, using Canadian reference standards for structural analysis. Following analysis, engineers have recommended that the approaches at Halkett Bay and Vaucroft be restricted to pedestrian loads until additional cross bracing is installed to address vehicle braking loads. Signage and a barrier will be installed shortly at these locations. The barrier will be movable to enable bulky hand freight to pass. Read the full Notice of Service change here.
Service Notice Update - July 19, 2019
Following the notice of service change issued July 17, 2019 restricting Vaucroft and Halkett Bay docks to pedestrian loads only, SCRD has undertaken further analysis and is permitting golf carts to travel on the wharf approach. Golf carts should be lightly loaded. No trailers, ATVs, gators or other vehicles are permitted to use the dock.
SCRD will communicate updates as capital repairs are scheduled. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
