Windermere boat ramp upgrade complete

Published on 21 March 2017

The City of Launceston has completed a $212,000 upgrade of the Windermere Boat Ramp, and the ramp has been re-opened to boaters.
The ramp has been re-surfaced in concrete and re-graded, while a new floating pontoon has also been installed.

The project was made possible through a $170,000 grant from Marine and Safety Tasmania's annual Recreational Boating Fund.

Launceston Mayor Albert van Zetten said the upgraded ramp featured concrete edging designed to limit the amount of gravel being washed on to the ramp.

"The Tamar River is an extremely popular boating waterway, with a raft of recreational activities taking place on the river over summer," Mayor van Zetten said.

"This upgraded ramp will provide boat owners with fantastic access to the river from the eastern shore, opposite Rosevears, with a contemporary ramp and floating pontoon.

"We are extremely grateful to MAST and its excellent Recreational Boating Fund program, which helps to fund projects like this all over Tasmania."
