The following scope of works will be delivered at the site:
Works to be designed and constructed within environmental and heritage regulations.
The overarching purpose of this project is to improve the standard of this recreational boating facility, utilised by locals and visitors alike.
Council’s Maritime Infrastructure Plan (February 2014) identified replacement of the existing boat ramp, installation of a pontoon jetty and enlargement of the sealed parking area in the medium/long term scope of works.
Total project funding = $655,000
Feedback from the Bermagui area in response to the “Understanding Our Place” community engagement process, which subsequently informed the Community Strategic Plan (CSP), included “improved recreation facilities and spaces”. This feedback links to CSP Outcome 1 Active and Healthy Communities; specifically the second goal of this outcome of “access to good quality recreation and sporting facilities”.
GPM Marine Constructions P/L will begin pre-construction activities (site set-out, including establishing boundaries and constraints, etc) from 24 September 2020.
Works are scheduled to finish mid December. The boat ramp and car park will be closed to the public during this time. Access to the public toilets will remain open.
The alternative boat launch site for the Bermagui River is at Bermgui Harbour (Posidonia Esplanade, Bermagui).
Works are scheduled for completion by mid-December in time for peak summer holiday period.
