Project update

Works to upgrade to the Governor Road Boat Ramp are underway. A site compound has been established and contractors have commenced dredging operations.

The ramp will be closed to the public until early July for the duration of works. For more infomation on nearby ramps, head to the Boating Vic website.

As part of the works, the existing pontoons will be removed and a de-watering compound established to process dredged material. Dredging will occur in the vicinity of the boat ramp to remove 600m3 of sediment which is expected to take 7-10 days depending on weather and conditions.

A de-watering compound will be established on the car park. Dredged material will be placed in geotextile bags for 2-3 weeks before being disposed of at a licenced facility.

New concrete pontoons are scheduled for installation in early July once dredging has been completed. The boat ramp will re-open to the public shortly after.

Project information

A series of projects will be undertaken at Mordialloc to improve boating. You can read more about them here.

Two tide boards have already been installed at Nepean Highway Bridge, otherwise known as Pompei’s Bridge, to make it easier and safer for boaters to navigate by clearly indicating creek depth.

Works are underway to install a new pontoon west of the Nepean Highway Bridge, replace the current pontoons and undertake dredging at the boat ramp. In addition, we are working towards improving the car park at this boating facility.
