Lang Lang

Better Boating Victoria in partnership with the Lang Lang Foreshore Committee of Management has recently finalised concept plans for the future upgrade of the Lang Lang Point boat launching facility. The concept has been developed by experienced marine and civil engineers from Sureside Consulting with advice and input from key management agencies, local government and key stakeholders including local recreational fishers.

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.

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.

Key features of the upgrade include

  • Provision of an extra 32 car and trailer parks to bring capacity up to 45 parking spaces
  • Relocating the existing ramp further north and adding another lane to make a dual (2) lane facility
  • Installing a jetty between the ramps with wave screens to provide temporary berthing and shelter while launching and retrieving vessels.
  • Dedicated rigging and tie down space to reduce congestion in front of the ramp
  • Relocation of fish cleaning facilities to a more appropriate location on the foreshore
  • Provision of disabled car-trailer parking spaces

Recreational boaters, fishers and members of the broader community provided feedback on the concept in August this year. 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.

Now the concept has been finalised, engineers will move to the next stage which includes obtaining the necessary legislative approvals and converting the concept design into tender and construction ready plans.
