We're upgrading and extending the existing boat ramp to improve accessibility for recreational boating on this beautiful waterway.

1B St George Crescent, Sandy Point - end of road

Project timeline

Project start:  September 2022

Expected completion: December 2022

Reason for works

This project will improve the foreshore infrastructure and boost the experience for recreational boating on this beautiful waterway.

The extension of the boat ramp will achieve the ideal grade for launching and retrieving water craft and a new floating pontoon incorporating a kayak launching platform will provide a separation for large and small craft.

Scope of works

The scope of works involves:

  • Demolition of the existing boat ramp facility;
  • Construction of boat ramp extension;
  • Construction of foreshore area;
  • Repair of existing seawall; and
  • Dredging works.
