The $1.48m revamped Koolewong boat ramp was officially opened on August 20, by Central Coast Council and Roads and Maritime Services.
Council Acting Director Mr Boris Bolgoff said the upgrade had delivered what was promised – an enhanced experience for boating enthusiasts. “Not only have we constructed a dual-lane boat ramp with an onramp pontoon and an L-shaped floating pontoon, but we have also delivered improvements to car parking, as well as landscaping and ancillary works,” Mr Bolgoff said.
“This upgrade is just one of six boating infrastructure projects we will deliver in the next year, with Council investing a combined total of $2.29m across these projects,” he said. Mayor Cr Jane Smith said one of Council’s priorities was to deliver enhanced recreational experiences on the Coast and the delivery of this upgrade met that need for the growing number of boating enthusiasts and the broader community.
