Accessibility upgrades underway at the Wonthaggi courthouse
Wonthaggi Magistrates’ Court has closed its doors to enable vital upgrades that will improve access to the court room and registry area.
Primary court listings and registry services will be diverted to Korumburra Magistrates' Court until the court reopens in April 2018. Registry staff will be available at Korumburra on Tuesdays and Fridays during this time.
The upgrades include the addition of automatic doors, an electric lift, a ramp and hand rails. The program of works also includes the installation of a new accessible registry counter and the widening of doors and pathways.
“Court Services Victoria has worked closely with the Magistrates’ Court to finalise designs, ensuring that the upgrades support service delivery while creating a more accessible courthouse,” said Court Services Victoria Chief Operating Officer, Brian Stevenson.
CSV is committed to providing fair, accessible and responsive courts, and in support of this is undertaking an ongoing program of works across the state.
