Work starts on Ross St boat ramp at Burrum Heads

CREWS from RoadTek will start maintenance works on the Ross St Boat Ramp at Burrum Heads Tuesday.

The work, being done for the Department of Main Roads and Transport, is expected to take about two weeks to complete, weather permitting.

The project includes removing the existing concrete boat ramp edging and replacing it with a wider, stone-pitched concrete shoulder.

Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the boat ramp would remain open for the duration of the works.

"People will still be able to launch their boats from the ramp, but there may be some slight delays depending on the work," he said.

A similar job was recently completed at the Poona boat ramp.
