The New South Wales Government has awarded a contract of up to $615,000 for dredging work to maintain boating access into the Coffs Harbor inner areas, the Member for Coffs Harbor Gurmesh Singh said. 

According to Mr Singh, Dredging Solutions Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract following a competitive tender by the Department of Industry – Lands.

“I’m happy to announce the NSW Government is contributing up to $615,000 funding for dredging works which is on top of the $130,000 that was allocated for emergency dredging that occurred ahead of the holiday period last summer,” Mr Singh said.

“This is great news for the boating community with work expected to get under way in July 2019.

“The entrance channel into the harbor is quite narrow and periodically experiences sand build up which can restrict boat access to the marina, wharves, fuel and other maritime related facilities located inside the harbor.”

The scope of works has been developed in consultation with Coffs Harbor City Council giving consideration for dredged sand to be placed on Park Beach.
