The Point Walter boat ramp has reopened and has been completely rebuilt to offer a far more functional and safer boat ramp for the local boating community to enjoy.
Designed in accordance with Department of Transport guidelines, the new ramp features two lanes, a finger jetty and an improved approach ramp making it easier for users to reverse down the ramp.
Users can now easily launch a boat on their own, and more people can use the ramp at one time thanks to the new finger jetty which allows people to berth their boats while they park their car.
City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey thanked the community for their patience while the upgrade was underway, and hoped local boaties enjoy and make good use of the new and improved facilities.
“We know the timing wasn’t ideal for our boating community and we really do appreciate the patience shown by them while these important works were done,” Mayor Aubrey said.
“We are pleased to say the result of the community’s patience over this summer season is now two first-class boat launching facilities in our City with new ramps at Point Walter and also Deep Water Point, which reopened late last year following its own upgrade.”
The Deep Water Point and Point Walter boat ramp works were funded by a $1.4million grant from the Department of Transport’s Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme and a $470,000 contribution from the City of Melville.
