VIDEO: $1.2M Boost for Ettalong Channel Dredging


Terrigal state Liberal MP, Adam Crouch, today announced $1.225 million of ‘Rescuing Our Waterways’ funding from the Liberal-Nationals Government towards a long-term solution for Ettalong Channel.

This funding will be provided to Council to ensure that we never see a repeat of the past 12 months. We’re committed to ensuring the Ettalong Channel is safe and accessible for the local ferry and recreational vessels,” Crouch said.

The new dredging program will see 80,000 cubic meters of sand from the navigation channel removed, with the intention to relocate it to the nearshore areas of Ettalong, Ocean and Umina Beaches.

The project will focus on keeping Ettalong and Box Head Channels open and navigable.
