Mr Chester added, "I secured $5 million from the previous Federal Government for these works which include new pedestrian access to link the Lakes Entrance esplanade with the island's redeveloped facilities such as the on-water cafe."

"The work is due to be completed in December and I know it will make a huge difference to locals and also all the visitors the warmer months bring." Mr Chester concluded.
