New Boat Ramp Finished
Boat launching capacity at Two Rocks Marina has been doubled with the completion of an upgrade funded by the WA State Government.
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the $1.2 million staged project, completed on time and under budget.
Stage one works, completed last July, more than doubled the parking area resulting in a significant increase in marked bays from 38 to 99 and introduced traffic management measures to facilitate queuing and ease congestion.
Stage two, partly funded by the Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme (RBFS), saw the boat ramp widened to two distinct lanes, installation of a central 50m floating jetty, realignment of the revetment wall, new access paths, solar lighting and signage upgrades.
The Minister said careful consideration of the works program had helped maintain access to the facility for the duration of the construction period.
