Work on Paynesville’s Slip Road Maritime Precinct to recommence

Construction of the Slip Road Maritime Precinct project in Paynesville is set to restart following a comprehensive design update to create a revitalised precinct for boaters that will include a new boat ramp, two pontoon jetties providing additional berthing, and a services jetty for minor works.

East Gippsland Shire Council Mayor Cr Tom Crook welcomed completion of the new design and recommencement of works.

“The new design is vital to the project’s overall success, and we acknowledge the delay and appreciate the community’s understanding and support for this re-design work,” Cr Crook said.

Council’s engaged contractor, Carter Marine, has been awarded a varied contract for construction of the seawall, jetties and boardwalk. A tender for construction of the carpark and landscaping will be advertised later this year following the finalisation of the marine based work by Carter Marine.

“We also thank Carter Marine for their patience,” Cr Crook said. “The updated design ensures that the waterfront structures it constructs will be safe, stable, and offer tangible benefits in terms of boating and the local economy for decades to come.”

The Slip Road Maritime Precinct will enhance Paynesville’s appeal as a year-round destination for boaters generating many economic benefits for Paynesville and the broader region.

The project is a collaborative effort between the Australian Government, Victorian Government and Council, each of which provided substantial grant funding for the project.
