Karuah Boat Ramp Upgrades - Stage 2

Works are now completed on site.

Project details
Following community consultation, the stage 2 design for the Karuah Boat Ramp upgrades were finalised. The design is expected to upgrade the functionality of the ramp, making it more user friendly.

Stage 1 of upgrades to the Karuah Boat Ramp were completed in 2017 and to complete stage 2 of the project, grant funding was applied for. Council was successful in their application to NSW Government’s Boating Now program and stage 2 will be fully funded by NSW Government

The construction period has now been rescheduled to begin from February 2019.

Unfortunately, to undertake the works safely the boat ramp will now need to be closed from 18 February for two weeks until 4 March 2019.

Stage 2 design details
• The existing timber wharf will be removed
• The floating pontoons will be made to a 1.5m width to avoid these being affected by the low tide and coming into contact with the sea bottom.
• Hand railings will be installed on the inner faces of the new pontoons to allow for easier use.
• The new pontoons will be constructed as a concrete decking, matching the existing pontoons.
• The new pontoons will be connected to the southern pontoon.
• Erosion and sediment controls will be deployed at all times during construction
