- The project also includes a 140-metre raised, accessible, night-lit walkway that will connect the existing Queen Elizabeth Lookout to the new Prince of Wales Lookout, the new amphitheatre, the main Echo Point platform and the Visitor Information Centre.
Evacuation signs, security bollards and CCTV
- Council continues to improve visitor facilities and safety at Echo Point and in August 2018, Council secured a Federal Government Safer Communities grant to introduce security measures at this high profile and unique location.
- Council is installing bollards and a Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) system at Echo Point to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the community and visitors at the site. All works will be conducted in line with relevant legislation, regulation and best practice guidelines.
- Four CCTV cameras will be erected at the entry of the Echo Point precinct and another two under the Queen Elizabeth Lookout.
- CCTV cameras will be directed at the platform and not at private property.
- Evacuation signage has already been installed at the site.
There will be partial closures of Echo Point during the construction period, between October 2019 and up to August 2020. We are sorry for any inconvenience during this period.
The accredited Visitor Information Centre at Echo Point will remain open seven days a week, 9am to 5pm, throughout the project (except for Christmas Day). Our friendly staff can help you plan your visit in the Blue Mountains.
Council received matched funding from the Federal Government’s National Stronger Regions grant program for this project.
