Work set to be done on Nerimbera boat ramp

FITZROY River boaties can now enjoy the widened boat ramp on St Christopher's Chapel Road, with works completed.

Brittany Lauga, Member for Keppel, said the project to widen the Nerimbera boat ramp from two to four lanes would provide long-term benefits for the community.

"This is a much-welcomed upgrade, supporting recreational fishing and boating in this popular area," she said

"This facility is the busiest ramp on the northern side of the Fitzroy River."

Mrs Lauga, a keen angler, said the upgrade would ease congestion by improving access to the water and reducing queue times.

QMC Group was awarded the $451,000 contract and started works in August.

"QMC Group has completed this project ahead of time, which is great news for boaties - especially with the Christmas and summer holidays coming up soon." The project was funded by the Queensland Government's Marine Infrastructure Fund.
