Mosman Jetty upgrade completed20 October 2020
Boaters in Mosman have safer and easier access to Sydney Harbour with the upgrade of the Balmoral Jetty now complete.
The upgrade to the jetty will improve boater safety with upgraded piles and jetty fendering enabling a wider range of vessels to berth and board and unload passengers.
Work on the maritime infrastructure upgrade, which serves as an access point for beachgoers, water taxis, emergency vessels and visitors to the Balmoral area, started in October last year and has been completed in advance of the 2020-21 summer boating season.
The $524,000 upgrade project was jointly funded by Mosman Council and Transport for NSW as part of the NSW Government’s $98 million investment in the Boating Now program to improve boating access, amenity and safety for NSW boaters.
Mosman Mayor Carolyn Corrigan said the upgrade would benefit the community just in time for summer.
“This important infrastructure upgrade will make it easier and safer for vessels to berth and for users to enjoy their day on and around the water at our iconic Balmoral Beach,” Cr Corrigan said.
“Mosman Council engineers undertook a complete jetty upgrade after identifying that some of the structural components of Balmoral Jetty needed replacement.”
The Boating Now program is funded from boating licence, registration and other fees collected by Transport for NSW. Since its inception in 2014, the program has delivered more than 200 projects for the benefit of boaters across NSW.
