The Deep Water Bend boat ramp at Bald Hills has reopened after a $230,000 upgrade to improve the facility as part of the Palaszczuk Government’s Marine Infrastructure Investment Programme.
Member for Sandgate Stirling Hinchliffe said the works to resurface the existing boat ramp and repair the toe had been welcomed by boaties across the region.
“It is little secret to Bald Hills locals that Deep Water Bend is a terrific spot on the Pine River to have a picnic and put the boat in, so these works will ensure the facility meets current standards and will improve safety,” Mr Hinchliffe said.
Member for Aspley Bart Mellish said the timing of the reopening of the boat ramp could not have been better, with Northsiders set to get out and enjoy the water during the warmer months.
“I would like to thank the local boaties and the community for their patience throughout these works, and I look forward to seeing the facilities get put to use,” Mr Mellish said.
Works were done by North Brisbane contractor, Australian Marine and Civil, which worked hard to ensure the facility was reopened in time for spring.
