An important upgrade to Mordialloc Creek has begun with the installation of two new tide boards.
The tide boards have been installed at Nepean Highway Bridge, otherwise known as Pompei’s Bridge, to make it easier and safer for boaters navigate by clearly indicating creek depth.
The Victorian Government has committed to fund the upgrades at six key locations across the state including Mordialloc Creek as part of Government’s Better Boating initiatives.
In addition to installing the tide boards, Better Boating Victoria has started planning for the installation of a new pontoon west of the Nepean Highway Bridge and has started scoping locations with the Mordialloc Creek Community.
A hydrographic survey of the creek will also be undertaken to facilitate pontoon replacements at the Mordialloc Boat Ramp.
To further improve information for boaters and fishers, Maritime Safety Victoria is also planning to install a webcam at the Mordialloc boat ramp that will be linked to the Boating Vic App, to provide real-time information on ramp conditions, tides and weather.
This project forms part of the Victorian Government’s $47.2 million funding package to improve boating across the state. This includes abolishing public boat ramp fees, upgrading boat ramps at six locations and reviewing boating infrastructure in Port Phillip and Western Port.
