CORINELLA residents could see major works
begin at the local boat ramp as soon as next
year if the Corinella Foreshore Committee of
Management is successful in grant applica-
Works on cutting back a corner at the bottom
of Peters Street are nearly completed and it’s
expected the moving of light poles and a bin will
be done this month.
It will give drivers a wider tarmac area for
boat rigging and derigging, and cars with trail-
ers exiting the area will no longer need to swing
out across the path of entering traffic.
Corinella Foreshore Committee of Manage-
ment secretary Barbara Oates said the extra de-
rigging lane will be ready for use this summer.
“It’s nearly there and the extra lane will give
people much more room,” she said.
“The revegetation is nearly completed and
we’re applying for funds later this year to begin
the major works.”
The committee will meet with the community
in September for a final rundown on the plans
to upgrade the jetty.
“We keep asking everyone what they think be-
cause there’s nothing worse than someone say-
ing they didn’t know about it.”
Once funding for the project is secured, the
committee will have a rough idea on when the
project will be completed.
For more information on the upgrade, go to
www.corinellaforeshore.com.au or search for
the ‘Corinella Foreshore Committee of Manage-
ment’ on Facebook.
