Sugarloaf boat ramp update: Repairs completed, ramp open this afternoon

05 July 2012

Repairs to one of the boat ramps at the Sugar Loaf have been completed, almost a month ahead of schedule.

The larger boat ramp at the facility had been undermined by tidal action and propeller wash, which had resulted in the collapse of a large section of the concrete ramp.

"Our team has worked hard to get the ramp operational and the repairs are now completed. The ramp is now better than new and will not be at risk of being undermined by tides and prop action. The concrete repair has firmly placed the ramp onto bedrock" said Economic Development and Communications Manager Benjamin Day.
