Redland City’s Marine Infrastructure Projects Involve Dredging (Australia)

Redland City’s reputation as a city of islands will be enhanced, thanks to almost $14 million of marine infrastructure projects in the 2014-15 Budget.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the funding would include new jetties and boat ramp upgrades.

Redland City has a large coastal population including about 10,000 residents who live on islands, so it is important we provide the infrastructure to support our coastal lifestyle,” she said.

This includes major projects such as commencement of the Macleay Island foreshore project, which will be constructed over two years and includes a new recreational boat-ramp and car parking facilities.

“The Budget also commits $4.6 million for a new jetty for Coochiemudlo Island, a joint State Government and Council project that will provide a new all-weather and all-abilities jetty for residents.”

Cr Williams said Redland City had a large number of boat owners who would benefit from a number of capital projects included in this year’s Budget.

“An upgrade of the Wellington Point south boat ramp will be completed along with two floating walkways at the Williams Street boat ramp at a cost of $900,000,” she said.

Dredging works in preparation for the new Victoria Point Jetty are also expected to commence by the end of the year.

“Revetment wall maintenance and dredging works at canal estates are also included in the $61.9 million capital plan.”
