Australia: Government Invests Big in Port of Eden
NSW Treasurer and Member for Bega Andrew Constance and Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay announced a $10 million upgrade to the Port of Eden.
“The Port of Eden Infrastructure Improvement Program will deliver new boating infrastructure and improve maritime safety in Twofold Bay,” Mr Constance said.
Mr Constance said the NSW Coalition Government recognised Eden’s proud maritime tradition.
“Eden is an active working Port, a premier location for whale watching and is an emerging cruise destination,” he said.
“This $10 million investment in the Port of Eden follows the $3 million commitment made by the Deputy Premier in March this year towards the extension the Port of Eden Breakwater Wharf.
“The extension will enable the port to accommodate more and larger cruise ships.”
