A ladder has now been installed on the Second Valley jetty. It is a good one, quite reasonable for use by divers exiting (& entering?) the water. Photos of the new ladder have been posted at http://picasaweb.google.com.au/stevereynolds600/NewLadderNowAtSecondValleyJetty. (My apologies for those above water shots with water still on the lens.) Other options at this stage, apart from using the ladder, are entry (& exit) from the beach, rocks, or walking to the second bay to the left of the jetty. The District Council of Yankalilla is working towards the building of replacement steps for the jetty. They will report the works to be undertaken on the jetty to replace the steps in the new year. The jetty & causeway are a State Heritage listed Council Asset. As such, they require DEH, DTEI & development approval. Council staffs have been “working with these departments, proposing improvements that adhere to heritage principles & meet the requirements of the community & their recreational needs”.
