Upgrade of the jetty that services the boat ramp at Kianinny Bay, Tathra, will begin next week. 

The works are estimated to take approximately four weeks, weather and tides permitting, and during this period the boat ramp lane nearest the jetty and the jetty itself will not be available for use.

Bega Valley Shire Council’s project engineer, David Buckley, said that the while the current jetty is serviceable, major improvement works are required to service a boat ramp of this size and usage.

The jetty upgrade will include new concrete decks and berthing faces, and the removal of rock outcrops below the waterline along the berthing faces, which pose a fouling hazard to boats at low tide.  The project also includes the installation of ladders, mooring cleats, bollards and berthing fenders.

This project is being funded jointly by Bega Valley Shire Council and Roads and Maritime Services under the NSW Boating Now program and will cost $115,000.

Stakeholders include Roads & Maritime Services, Crown Lands, the Department of Primary Industries – Fisheries, Council, Tathra Amateur Fishing Club, Council’s Access Advisory Committee and individuals who use Kianinny Bay for swimming.
