Upgrade for esplanade river access

Click image to enlarge
MARINE and Safety Tasmania (MAST) will provide up to $40,000 to provide a pontoon system to improve access to and from the Derwent River at the esplanade in New Norfolk.

A grant has been provided from the Recreational Boating Fund and the completed pontoon system will be owned by the Derwent Valley Council. This will be similar to the temporary pontoon seen at this year's Derwent Valley Autumn Festival (left).

MAST has allocated nearly $1 million a year from recreational boating registration fees into the Recreational Boating Fund. Submissions are sought from from boat owners each year for worthwhile projects to be funded. More than $13.5 million has been spent on improvements to recreational boating facilities and services around the state since 1998.
