Boat Ramp Closure

This has just been brought to my attention by patto41 in the forums.

Townsville City Council wishes to advise the Saunders Beach boat ramp will be closed during February 2009 for urgent reconstruction work.

Recent investigations have found the bottom of the ramp, which is owned by Queensland Transport and managed and maintained by council, is deteriorating.

This poses a safety risk if the ramp is used during low tide. Starting in the first week of February, construction crews will upgrade the boat ramp. This work is expected to take approximately four weeks to complete.

During this period, the boat ramp as well as the access road will be closed to the public.

Alternative boat ramps in the area which could be used are Balgal Beach, Toomulla, Bluewater and Purono Park.

This project is funded by Queensland Transport and is being carried out in conjunction with environmental authorities. For any queries, please contact the council’s Customer Service Centre
on 4727 9000.
