Australia: Minister for Ports Visits Inverloch Jetty

Boaters and other waterway users in Inverloch made good use of the water this summer thanks to the upgraded Inverloch jetty which opened in November.

Minister for Ports David Hodgett, Member for Bass Ken Smith and Liberal Candidate for Bass Brian Paynter today visited the jetty with representatives from Gippsland Ports to inspect the upgrades.

Mr Hodgett said the upgrades had improved the accessibility and functionality of the jetty.

The $487,000 project was partly funded through the Victorian Coalition Government’s Boating Safety and Facilities Program which provided $212,000 towards the redevelopment.

Gippsland Ports, through the Victorian Coalition Government’s Local Ports Program, contributed the remaining $275,000 in project funds.

Member for Bass Ken Smith said the improved jetty design was developed as a result of the local port manager, Gippsland Ports, working with the local community and jetty users to achieve the best design outcome.
