Ramped up boating facilities now complete at San Remo
17 March 2020
Central Coast boaters now have safer and easier access to Budgewoi Lake with work complete on a new boat ramp and jetty for Hot Water Outlet at San Remo.
NSW Maritime Acting Director Alex Barrell said the new boat ramp and jetty is a great addition to San Remo and was co-funded by the NSW Government and Central Coast Council through a grant of $432,925 from the Boating Now program.
"The project benefits boaters accessing Budgewoi Lake by making it easier to launch and retrieve vessels and replaces the closed boat ramp at Emu Drive at San Remo," Mr Barrell said.
It includes a new single lane boat ramp and jetty, carpark improvements and landscaping work.
Central Coast Mayor Lisa Matthews said the work was required to meet the ongoing needs of the boating community on the Central Coast.
"We are thankful to the NSW Government for co-funding this project, which will allow watercraft to enter the lake safely and with minimal impact on the environment," Mayor Matthews said.
"This project demonstrates how the NSW Government and Council are working together to provide the services and infrastructure for the growing community," Mayor Matthews said.
The $98 million NSW Government Boating Now program provides boaters with better and safer access to NSW waterways with upgrades and new infrastructure such as boat ramps, jetties, pontoons, car parks and sewage pump-out facilities.
