Revamp underway at Rosslyn Bay

Revamp underway at Rosslyn Bay

A range of works will start at Rosslyn Bay Boat Harbour, south of Yeppoon, this week after The Jetty Specialist was awarded a $500,000 contract.

Planned works include replacing floating walkways at both boat ramps, new disability access toilets, and dredging the harbour, according to Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga.

“The contractor aims to begin the piling works at the Breakwater Drive floating walkway (eastern side) from 19 June, then make its way to the Anchor Drive floating walkway (western side),” she said.

“During the piling works, which are expected to take a couple days at each location, there will be a full closure of the boat ramp for safety reasons.”

Completion of works is expected early September 2019.

Mrs Lauga said the maintenance works followed several projects announced for the harbour.

“Maintenance dredging is set to start later this month and the completion of the car-trailer park expansion is planned for mid-July,” she said.

“Resurfacing of existing carparks is also planned for late-July.

“These combined projects are a huge investment for Rosslyn Bay Boat Harbour and a massive win for local boaties.”

The works are funded under the Queensland Government’s Marine Infrastructure Investment Program.
