Local councils will work alongside the state government to deliver the facilities, with work set to begin this year.
The final four projects are:
- Upgrading the Nerimbera boat ramp at Fitzroy River – bringing the number of lanes from two to four
- Building a new two-lane boat ramp and floating walkway at Maroochy River’s Twin Waters site on Nojoor Road
- Adding a further two lanes to the Coorooman Creek boat ramp at Zilzie
- Improving the Ocean Creek boat ramp at Peggy Bog Road in Airdmillan
Commenting on previous work completed under the Marine Infrastructure Fund, Member for Lytton Neil Symes said upgrades to Manly Boat Harbour were particularly well received.
“In December, the $1.5 million northern breakwater extension was completed and holiday boaties have been enjoying smoother, safer sailing as a result,” he explained.
“The existing breakwater was raised and extended by 113 metres to provide boaties with better protection from wind and waves, especially from the north.”
Mr Symes said the project further enhanced the harbour, one of Australia’s busiest, after previous infrastructure work had resulted in a wider entrance channel and the installation of two floating walkways.
