Catley: Permanent Dredging Solution for Swansea Channel

Yasmin Catley, Member for Swansea, said in her latest announcement that the Australian Labor Party (NSW Labor) will provide funding for a permanent dredging solution for the Swansea Channel.

“This has been a long time coming and I was pleased to have my colleague, friend and Shadow Treasurer Ryan Park for Keira to announce the dredging solution,” said Catley. 

“This is vital for locals and tourists alike. We live on the largest salt water lake in the Southern Hemisphere and boats are getting stuck in the channel with inconsistent and insufficient dredging campaigns.

“The community has raised this issue with me time and time again, and I’m pleased that a NSW Labor Government will fix the problem.”

Catley added that Labor plans to invest in a “state-of-the-art dredge to ensure the safe navigability” of the channel, and would go to tender to procure a dredge that will be based at Swansea.

“A dredge based at Swansea will ensure the channel is safe and navigable – not just sometimes, all the time,” concluded Catley.
