Redevelopment flagged for Bullen Merri boat ramp

Better Boating Victoria chief executive officer Gary Gaffney discusses Lake Bullen Merri’s boat ramp woes with South Beach Committee of Management member Peter Place during an on-site tour this week.

A FULL redevelopment of the main boat ramp at Lake Bullen Merri’s South Beach was flagged at an on-site meeting with Better Boating Victoria’s new chief executive officer this week.

Six days into the job, Gary Gaffney toured the facility along with the organisation’s director Katherine Grech and communications adviser Charley May, according to an article in the Camperdown Chronicle.

South Beach Committee of Management member Peter Place said it was a chance to highlight ongoing problems at the boat ramp.

“We’ve struggled to maintain the ramp for years because the lake’s water level is receding at such a rapid pace,” Mr Place said.

“There are serious problems with boats getting in and out of the water and there have been reports of boats and trailers being damaged.”

Mr Gaffney said he now had a greater understanding of the issues associated with the boat ramp and that Better Boating Victoria would oversee a review of the management of boating infrastructure arrangements over the coming year.
