Video: Official ribbon cut to launch East Shores

THE ribbon has been officially cut at East Shores this morning as the redevelopment is officially opened.

WICET chief executive Robert Barnes and Gladstone Ports Corporation Craig Doyle did the honours.

East Shores, at Auckland Inlet, Gladstone, will be open to the public today, but Gladstone Ports Corporation is encouraging the community to plan their visits for the weekend, by which time the precinct will be fully accessible.

Some work will be undertaken through the day today to remove temporary fencing and barricading.

The redevelopment features a state-of-the-art water park, new parklands, waterfront boardwalk and viewing platform.

The world-class waterfront precinct has been delivered by Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal, which has contributed $35 million.

GPC has contributed a further $10 million and will operate the precinct.
