Works on the Rockingham Beach Foreshore Revitalisation is progressing well.

The new-look Railway Terrace will remain open at all times, with intermittent works taking place to complete the above-ground furniture and landscaping.

The Beach Plaza and Boardwalk to Val Street will have staged fencing, with construction tailored to minimise the impact.

​Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times with nearby on-street parking available, as well as carparks at Flinders Lane, Wanliss Street, behind the Gary Holland Community Centre and Rockingham Museum.
