PEDESTRIAN access to the Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse at Point Danger has been closed while the iconic memorial monument is repaired.
The site will be closed for six weeks while the suspended concrete slab nestled between the four columns marking the Queensland-NSW border is restored.
The $67,000 project will be jointly funded by the City of Gold Coast and Tweed Shire Council.

The decorative metal façade will be removed from the suspended slab during the repair works and will be reattached once the restoration is complete.
Tweed Shire Council has advised the repair work will not affect the tower communication operations of Marine Rescue-Point Danger, which is also located at the memorial.
The grassed viewing areas and the public carpark at Point Danger will also remain open.
