Upgrades to the Daly River Boat Ramp are another step closer with a tender awarded to Coleman’s Contracting and Earthmoving to construct the new car park and ablution facility.
Supported by local Traditional Owners, the upgrades will provide safe parking for boat ramp users and minimise waste and dust in the area.
Local company, Coleman’s Contracting and Earthmoving, was awarded the $4.35 million tender.
This project is jointly funded under the Northern Territory Government’s $50 million RecFishing Futures Program and the Australian Government’s Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program, and supports the NT Government’s commitment to improving recreational fishing infrastructure in the Territory.
Works are anticipated to commence this month and are expected to be complete by the end of the year.
To minimise disruptions, works will occur in stages which will delay the boat ramp closure until late in the dry season. Boat ramp users will be directed to Banyan Farm boat ramp during any closure periods of the main public ramp.
