Ballina Bar Dredging Plan Moves Forward (Australia)

Ballina Bar dredging works may at last be initiated.

Dona Page, member for Ballina, has announced a call for bids to conduct a feasibility study in order to assess the viability of dredging.

Competing offers from four companies will be generated next week.

Prior to starting the dredging works, a legal process has to be gone through. Obtaining the State and Federal approvals might take over six months.

Mr. Page said that $55,000 will be invested in upgrading the Cawarra Park boat ramp on North Creek and $69,000 will be invested in a new boat ramp for West Ballina.

The State Government is planning to conduct evaluation of environmental impact of the Ballina harbor dredging.
