Damage to Old Rapid Bay Jetty

12 January 2022

Boat operators, scuba divers and swimmers are advised to avoid waters in the immediate vicinity of Old Rapid Bay Jetty after a partial collapse of the closed jetty was discovered earlier this week.

Although there has been no pedestrian access to the jetty since it was closed in late 2004, the site is popular with scuba divers due to the area’s rich marine life.

The partial collapse was discovered on Monday, 10 January. The Department for Infrastructure and Transport has conducted an initial inspection of the damage, with works to follow soon.

For safety reasons scuba divers, swimmers and boat operators are asked to avoid this area until this work is complete.

As further information becomes available the Department will provide updates via Facebook and Twitter.
