Lang Lang

Better Boating Victoria, in partnership with the Lang Lang Foreshore Committee of Management are progressing plans for the future upgrade of the Lang Lang Point boat launching facility.

Attention has now turned to drafting construction-ready designs and progressing the necessary approvals.

The construction-ready designs are being developed by experienced marine and civil engineers from FSC Range with advice and input from key management agencies, local government and key stakeholders including local recreational fishers.

Engineers have moved to the next stage of the process which includes reviewing the concept design, preparing construction ready plans and obtaining the necessary legislative approvals.

After reviewing the concept, a more efficient design has been identified that still achieves the upgrade objectives.

The Lang Lang boat ramp is located approximately an hour south-east of Melbourne on the shores of Western Port. The existing facility comprises a single lane concrete boat ramp which is in poor condition, and only accessible at the top of the high tide. It is a fair weather only ramp with a modest, unmarked gravel car park and a small fish cleaning table.

Key features of the upgrade include

  • Formalising the car and trailer parking area to increase the capacity
  • Replace the existing single-lane ramp with a dual (2) lane facility to improve launching and retrieval
  • Installing a jetty to provide temporary berthing and shelter while launching and retrieving vessels

The key features of the proposed upgrade are expected to increase capacity and improve the efficiency and speed of vessel launching and retrieval. Upgrading and improving the functionality of the Lang Lang facility will assist in easing some of the congestion at nearby facilities and address the increasing demand in the region for recreational boating facilities.

Recreational boaters, fishers and members of the broader community provided feedback on the concept in August 2021. COVID restrictions at the time meant consultation occurred predominantly online. Feedback received through this process supported the concept but highlighted issues such as ongoing dredging, lighting and security, orientation of parking spaces and consideration of other user groups.
