The Newell Beach boat ramp is one step closer after planning designs were released this week.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) now moves into the community consultation stage of the process of the $3.2 million project.
The Member for Cook, Cynthia Lui, is encouraging all residents to take the opportunity to have their say on the proposed boat ramp design.
“This has been a complex process. Because the location has very high environmental values, we had to go through a consultation process with the Queensland Departments of Environment and Science; Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry; Natural Resources, Mines and Energy and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority was also consulted. And those assessments have been rigorous and thorough,” she said.
A consultation meeting with key stakeholders was held on 29 January 2020 with the design viewed.
