PRINCES PIER, MELBOURNE
Completed in 1915, the 580m long Princes Pier was originally known as the New Railway Pier – it was renamed after the Prince of Wales visit in 1920. It later became disused and deteriorated badly, finally being closed to the public in the early 1990s. Further deterioration followed until a major restoration commenced in 2006 with only the first 196 metres of the pier being restored and the remaining pylons preserved. A full restoration was estimated to cost $60 million. A contract for the work was awarded in June 2007 and the refurbished section of the pier reopened to the public in December 2011.
