Evans Landing Boat Ramp Temporary Closures
The Evans Landing Boat Ramp will be temporarily closed when a fuel vessel is alongside at Evans Landing Wharf or a barge is unloading cargo at the adjacent foreshore area.
This decision has been made in the interest of public safety after NQBP commissioned an independent risk assessment to review the activities associated with the Evans Landing Boat Ramp.
Plans for a new boat ramp east of the existing ramp are well advanced and NQBP is committed to ensuring the new public boat ramp is delivered at the earliest possible time to avoid ongoing inconveniences.
NQBP will keep the community informed of any upcoming temporary closures.
