Tuross boatramp closed for dredging

Eurobodalla Council began dredging the Lavender Bay boat ramp at Tuross on Wednesday to improve access for boaters.

Council’s support services engineer Royce Toohey said the work was performed about every 12 to 18 months as sand built up in the channel.

“We had always planned to do this work before the busy Easter period, however it was machine and tide dependent,” he said.

“To do the dredging we needed a specialised long-reach excavator and late last week a machine from Wollongong became available.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and the lack of notice to boaters.”

Mr Toohey expected the work to be complete on Thursday.

“We allowed two days to undertake the works, as the amount of material to be removed could not be determined until works began,” he said.

“The ramp will be opened overnight and we will accommodate fishers who go out early and return on Thursday after works begin.

“We appreciate the community’s patience and understanding while these works are underway.”
