Maritime Infrastructure Delivery Office (MIDO)
The Maritime Infrastructure Delivery Office (MIDO) is a joint initiative between Transport for NSW, Maritime and the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) to improve the coordination and delivery of coastal and boating infrastructure programs and projects across NSW that support recreational boating, fishing, tourism and a range of other commercial activities.
Brunswick Heads Harbour upgrade
Transport for NSW Maritime is funding upgrades to the existing boating facilities at Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour to improve safe access to the waterway. As part of the planning and design phase, we will engage with harbour users, adjacent landholders and the community throughout the project, including the planning, design, and construction stages. For more information on this project, view the Brunswick Heads Harbour page.

The MIDO is responsible for:
- Delivering key projects and programs including Transport for NSW, Maritime's Boating Now program, maritime asset management functions and geospatial services.
- Delivering the NSW Boating Access Dredging Program and a number of major infrastructure projects including the Eden Safe Harbour Project and the Kamay Ferry Wharves.
- Providing a one-stop-shop for councils, industry and other delivery partners looking for guidance and support on their own maritime infrastructure and dredging projects. This includes offering up-front advice in the early stages of the application process for future grant programs.
The Kiama Harbour Revitalisation Action Plan is available to view. This Strategic Framework guides the future investment into the Kiama Harbour, to support the local community, tourism and regional development. More information is available on the Kiama Harbour Revitalisation webpage.
The Entrance - rock groyne study
The NSW Government built a short rock groyne on The Entrance South Beach in 2017 following a 2015 election commitment. In response to the then NSW Coastal Council recommendation to the Review of Environmental Factors, the NSW Government also committed to to monitor the impact of the structure for any unintended adverse outcomes. As TfNSW is the asset owner, MIDO has undertaken this monitoring.
TfNSW engaged consultants (Salients) to complete an Impact Assessment Study. The study is now finalised. It is marked “Interim Final” as it is intended that monitoring will continue over the next few years to ensure that the impact of the groyne is monitored and assessed out to the ten year post-construction horizon.

Wollongong Harbour Masterplan
The Wollongong Harbour Masterplan Report is now available to view. This plan guides the vision and future investment for the historical Wollongong Harbour, to maintain its important function as a working harbour and as a tourism and recreation hub for the city.
The Harbour is shared by many different users, and improving access, facilities and amenities will help strengthen the links between land and water, and promote safer use of the waterway by all.
The Wollongong Harbour Master Plan reflects the value of the harbour to the local community and other key stakeholders as identified during consultation that started in 2017.
