Perce White Reserve closed

From 19th May, Perce White Reserve was fenced off to allow work to begin on the boardwalk that will be the centrepiece of the Port of Melbourne's buffer plan for the expanded Webb Dock. 
The Reserve is scheduled to re-open in November. 
At this stage, no vegetation is to be removed. 
The carpark will remain open. Construction vehicles will access the site from Port of Melbourne land to the north.
