OCT 2021Construction is progressing

  • Perform hardstand earthworks, steel placement on western hardstand, sleeve and grout travel beam piles and create formwork for the gangway abutment.
  • Undertake work associated with Southern travel beam, pour gangway abutment, and more hardstand earthworks
  • Concrete the southern travel lift beam, preparation for northern hardstand, install gangway and pour western hardstand slab
  • Towards the end of the month, we will install marina fittings, install hardstand (west) fittings and pour concrete on northern travel lift beam.

JUL 2021Dredging program begins

The work on this project is underway and dredging in the harbour will commence and will continue subject to prevailing weather conditions for the next 3 to 4 weeks – The plan below shows the dredging area.

Unfortunately, this may result in an increase in the local noise levels around the site for the duration of the dredging program.

The dredging works will be from 7.00am-6.00pm on weekdays and 8.00am-1.00pm on Saturdays

Proposed works

Boat Maintenance and Storage Facility

The proposed improvements to the existing Coffs Harbour Boat Maintenance and Storage Facility will provide a 75 tonne travel lift and upgrades to the onshore structures located at the former slipway site on Marina Drive, Coffs Harbour.

The work includes:

  • removing existing structures and disused services
  • excavation and backfilling with engineered fill to ground level to accommodate the new lift structure
  • regrading the level of the site and constructing a new concrete hardstand and services
  • designing and constructing a holding pontoon, gangway and associated services
  • constructing travel lift jetty support structures consisting of concrete beams on piles
  • upgrading services including fire hydrants and hoses, electrical, lighting and main distribution board, hydraulic, communication, trade waste system and storage containers.

The project will deliver improved safety and efficiency in the servicing of commercial and recreational vessels by reducing the need for heavy equipment and increasing the size of vessels to be moved.

The proposed boat maintenance and storage facility will meet EPA and WHS standards, and reduce the environmental impact of cleaning and descaling vessels in the Coffs Harbour vicinity.

Construction is now underway and is planned to continue through to November 2021 with a proposed opening of the facility in January to March 2022.

Coffs Harbour Marine Centre precinct

Coffs Harbour Marine Centre Marina

The proposed reconstruction of the Coffs Harbour Marine Centre Berths will add five additional berths and two pens for NSW Maritime, NSW Police Marine Area Command and Department of Primary Industries (Fisheries) bringing the total number of berths to nine. The new facility will allow each agency to improve response times, critical for maritime rescue and safety work.

The proposed marina upgrade work includes:

  • designing new pontoons, gangway and services
  • dredging the area to accommodate additional berths
  • removing ground and surface water from the existing hardstand
  • removing the existing pontoon berths including piles
  • removing two fixed ‘catwalk’ jetties and piles
  • designing, fabricating and installing new pontoons, gangway and services
  • upgrading electrical and hydraulic services to the new facilities.

Construction is now underway and planned to carry through to November 2021 with a proposed opening of the facility in November 2021.
