on the enlargement of the existing Boat Ramp to help cut the effects of wave
surges is due to begin on Monday, May 11.
the same time as the basin expansion works are carried out, Council will also
carry out additional road upgrade works along Jordan Esplanade from Camperdown
Street to the NSW Public Works compound on Corrambirra Point.
basin enlargement is being financed by a $1m grant from NSW Government Roads
and Maritime Services, while the road upgrade has been paid for through the
2014-2015 special rate variation.
modelling for the Boat Ramp expansion was undertaken by Manly Hydraulics
Laboratory in Manly Vale and it concluded that expanding the boat ramp basin
will reduce wave surge by around a third.
will still be able to access the Boat Ramp during the works which are not
expected to have a significant impact on its operation.
