Nelligen Boat Ramp Car Park

Project: Constructing an additional car park at the Wharf Street Boat Ramp in Nelligen

Funding: A $160,000 grant through the NSW State Government Boating Now funding program

Timeframe: Completion is expected within the 2018-2019 financial year


We have been successful in obtaining a $160,000 grant through the NSW State Government Boating Now funding program so that an additional car and boat trailer parking area can be built to service the boat ramp on Wharf Street, Nelligen.

The additional car park has been designed to cater for the high use of the boat ramp experienced particularly during peak periods.

The existing car park adjacent to the boat ramp currently has nine spaces for cars and boat trailers. The new car park will provide an additional 29 spaces.

Council has acquired vacant land at the southern end of Wharf Street to allow for construction.

A new service road will connect the existing car park to the new parking area. Vehicles will be have the option to continue through the car park and exit onto Tennis Court Lane. Three new streetlights will provide sufficient lighting for the service road and the car park.

Use of the boat ramp and existing car and boat trailer parking area will not be affected during construction.
