Boaters can look forward to new facilities at six boat ramps along the Far South Coast following a $2.4 million announcement on Friday, July 24.
Bega MP Andrew Constance announced $28 million of state government funding to "assist the boating community and generate jobs" as infrastructure was improved.
"Given the difficult times we're in, getting jobs out the door is important," Mr Constance said.
There are 69 projects funded around the state from boating licence and registration fees.
Mr Constance announced $2.48 million to support plans for projects at Pambula, Bermagui, Narooma, Moruya, Mossy Point and Hanging Rock (Batemans Bay).
The Hanging Rock boat ramp upgrades include a 30-metre long boat rigging bay, improvements to the boat wash-down area, pavement and an additional tap, an extension to the southern pontoon and upgrades to signage and lighting.
Apex Park boat ramp at Narooma will have the existing pontoon replaced with a new one.
At the Mossy Point boat ramp, there will be upgrades to signposting, line marking, lighting and the boat wash-down bay as well as the existing rock wall between the boat ramp and the jetty.
Brierleys Boat Ramp on the Moruya River, near the airport, will receive a $700,000 upgrade.
"It will see improvement with an amenities block, car parking and trailer parking, improved access and a pontoon," Mr Constance said.
Eurobodalla shire mayor Liz Innes welcomed the funding.
"With this money we will deliver some excellent projects for our boaters and fishers, and for the wider community," Cr Innes said.
"We're incredibly successful in securing infrastructure funds thanks to our proven delivery record and the competence of people like infrastructure director Warren Sharpe and his teams; the state government knows our projects are shovel-ready, and they'll be delivered on time and budget."
South Coast boating safety officer for Transport NSW, Arlo Ireland, said new boating facilities was important "for all coastal towns".
"The better quality of infrastructure we have for people to access the water, the better it is for our tourism and our locals," he said.
Mr Ireland said the proposed plans for the Brierleys Boat Ramp would be up for community consultation soon.
He said Brierlys ramp was closest to the entrance of the Moruya River, allowing better access and safety for boaters.
"The Moruya bar can be dangerous; This gives people the opportunity to check the bar with their own eyes from land before launching their boat," he said.
