7 May 2015 Boat Ramp Works to Start

Work on the enlargement of the existing Boat Ramp to help cut the effects of wave surges is due to begin on Monday, May 11.

 

At 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.

 

The 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.

 

The 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.

 

Users will still be able to access the Boat Ramp during the works which are not expected to have a significant impact on its operation.
