Rose Bay boat ramp upgrade complete

The Member for Vaucluse, Gabrielle Upton MP, today announced that the boat ramp at Lyne Park in Rose Bay has been reopened to the public after a major upgrade.

Ms Upton said the $1.2 million upgrade to the ramp was funded by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS)

Better Boating Program .

"I am pleased to announce that work to widen and extend the boat ramp is now complete – ahead of schedule," Ms Upton said.

"The upgraded boat ramp now has a new on-ramp pontoon and is one of the few points of entry into the eastern portion of Sydney Harbour."

An additional larger berthing pontoon, which has been designed to provide wave protection at the boat ramp, as well as disabled access, will also be opened to the public in September.

"For safety reasons, this larger berthing pontoon will remain closed until the construction of the new Rose Bay ferry wharf is complete," Ms Upton said.

Mayor of Woollahra Council, Councillor Susan Wynne, said the new wider boat ramp will deliver a safer and more convenient facility to launch, load and unload vessels.

"By September, boat owners and visitors to the area will see a great improvement in the access and boating facilities on offer at Lyne Park," Cr Wynne said. "The new boat ramp will encourage more people to enjoy Sydney Harbour for recreational boating."

The work was completed by Woollahra Council and the contractor GPM Constructions.
