Stage two works underway at Hastings

The second stage of works for the Hastings boat ramp is kicking along, Better Boating Victoria said.

The works include 12km of dredge piping being installed to enable the dredging of the harbour and around the new ramp, and construction of a new pontoon with improved all abilities access.

According to BBV, dredging will deepen the channel and accommodate the recently upgraded boat ramp, ensuring boats and watercraft can safely access the area in all tides.

Also, the boat ramp will be accessible during the dredging, however access may be limited at times when dredging is occurring in the immediate vicinity of the ramp.

Construction of the second pontoon will begin once the dredging works are completed and will mirror the existing one on the southern side of the boat ramp.

The new pontoon will provide increased temporary mooring and an improved launching and retrieval experience for the southern two boat ramp lanes.

These works are funded by Better Boating Victoria, as part of the State Government’s commitment to improving the recreational boating facilities at Hastings.
