APOLLO BAY- HERE & THERE
If you have travelled down along the Great Ocean Road in recent weeks you will have noticed a number of vital upgrade works are currently taking place to improve the iconic stretch. At least a further $10 Million dollars of State Government funding is expected to be received to assist in continuing to upgrade to the road to assist in adapting to the impacts of climate change.
The $10 million is part of a wider package of $27 million in the 2022/23 Budget and will go towards land reforms, hazard assessments and erosion protection along the Great Ocean Road to ensure the internationally famous visitor destination can continue to be safe and accessible into the future.
There is a further $16.9 million to deliver the state government’s Marine and Coastal Strategy, which will build resilience in Victoria’s marine and coastal areas. This includes $7.7 million to repair and maintain coastal assets such as coastal protection works at Eastern View on the Great Ocean Road.
In line with the Marine and Coastal Strategy, $3.8 million has been earmarked for community resilience initiatives such as supporting Traditional Owners in marine and coastal management, mapping blue carbon potential, and building Victoria’s first marine spatial planning framework to balance the needs of different marine uses.
There is $1 million for Coastcare Victoria and community stewardship activities, helping volunteers to respond to climate change and $1 million in Coastal Public Access and Risk grants program for land managers to address coastal protection issues.
“Victoria’s coastline is facing significant climate challenges and that’s why we’re supporting this work to protect it while continuing to improve access to our spectacular coast,” Minister for Environment and Climate Action Lily D’Ambrosio said last week.
“Protecting our marine and coastal environments is not a quick fix, and we’re planning ahead to ensure the works we do now will last for generations to come.”
