Boat ramp progressing
CONSTRUCTION is well under way at the Lamington Bridge boat ramp in Maryborough, with the base piles for the new floating walkway firmly set in place.
The new $900,000 walkway and boat ramp, which was funded by the State Government, will allow boaties better access to the area.
A Transport and Main Roads spokesperson said construction on the new floating walkway and ramp was well on track.
"Earthworks have now been completed and the walkway piles have been installed," he said.
Preparation has already begun at the site for the next big task - a concrete pour.
"Currently, workers are preparing the area for a concrete pour, which will be used to extend and widen the boat ramp.
"Hopefully this will be completed in the next few weeks, weather permitting."
Work on the South St boat ramp began in January and is expected to be completed by the end of June.
A TMR spokesperson said the new boat ramp and walkway were being upgrade to support the local fishing community in Maryborough.
Fraser Coast boaties have been asked to use the Raglan St boat ramp until the upgrade of the Lamington Bridge boat ramp is completed.
