Boat ramp car park roped off while work takes place

GLADSTONE Regional Council will carry out car park repairs and line marking at Seventeen Seventy boat ramp on Wednesday and Thursday.

Engineering Services portfolio spokesman Rick Hansen said the project, estimated to cost about $6000, would focus on patching existing potholes, rejuvenating line marking and sweeping.

"Half of both car park areas will be cordoned off the night before each day's work to prevent vehicles from accessing the proposed work area," Cr Hansen said.

"The through lanes in the trailer park will be left open to allow access to the boat ramp throughout the duration of the work."

Cr Hansen said completing the project at the end of the month would ensure the facilities were available for the busy Christmas holiday period.
