Traffic in Inverloch may be slightly disrupted over the next few weeks as work begins on Inverloch’s long-awaited skate park. The Skate Park will be located off Reilly Street, adjacent to Bass Coast Shire Council’s Customer Service Centre and the Kevin Bradley Stadium.

The next four weeks will see road relocation works at Bolding Place. The existing Bolding Place, behind the stadium, will be permanently closed from Reilly Street to allow space for the new facility.

Traffic on Bolding Place will be re-directed to the west side of the Inverloch Community Centre and connected to A’Beckett Street. A "court bowl" will be constructed at the stadium end of Bolding Place to allow vehicles to turn, passengers to be dropped off and cars to park near the new skate park.

The Reilly Street entrance to the Inverloch Recreation Reserve will be closed temporarily during the works. However, there will still be two-way vehicle access along Reilly Street.

"There may be some initial disruption to traffic in the area, but once the new skate park is built we’re sure it will be worth any minor inconveniences," said Cr. Miranda Sage, Mayor of Bass Coast Shire Council.

While work is being undertaken on the road relocation, final concept plans are being drawn up for the actual skate facility. Bass Coast Shire Council will work with the local employment group TRY as part of the Community Jobs Program for this project. The project is set for completion by December 2001, just in time for the summer school holidays.

"We’re hoping that the Skate Park will become a place where young people can enjoy themselves, especially during the school holidays, without their parents worrying about their safety," said Cr. Sage.

Plans for the Skate Facility and the redevelopment of Bolding Place can be viewed at the Council’s Inverloch Customer Service Centre.
