The upgrade of the Beauty Point Boat Ramp is complete, with asphalt works and cleaning completed on Friday before it was opened to the public in time for the commencement of the NSW school holidays.
Lighting, landscaping and line marking will round out the overall project in the coming weeks; however, these planned works don’t prevent the use of the boat ramp itself.
The existing toilet facilities on the site are also set to get a facelift to complement the site upgrade, with this element to be completed following the holidays.
Council’s Recreation and Natural Assets team has taken advantage of another opportunity to complement the site upgrade by partnering with Local Land Services under the Marine Estate Management Strategy (MEMS) to carry out additional landscaping works along the foreshore. Wallaga Lake has been identified as a priority catchment for the delivery of on-ground actions under MEMS in the South East region.
The works will extend along the foreshore for approximately 80 metres from the boat ramp and will assist with reducing sediment and nutrient runoff from the unsealed track. They will also provide an aesthetic improvement for those visitors using the new accessible table installed on the track..
