North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP) are undertaking maintenance and repair works at Half Tide Tug Harbour from 16-22 May 2019.

The works include:

Boat ramp excavation works

These maintenance works will be undertaken using a land-based long reach excavator to remove the build-up of sand at the boat ramp. These works will improve access for recreational boaters. Work will take place from 8am to 6.30pm Thursday 16 May and Friday 17 May 2019.

Floating walkway repair and reinstatement works

These works will repair and reinstate the bottom sections of the floating walkway damaged earlier this year. Works will start from 6am Monday 20 May and are expected to be completed by 5pm Wednesday 22 May 2019.

Community access to Half Tide boat ramp and floating walkway

The boat ramp and the floating walkway will be closed during these works for safety operational purposes.

NQBP have planned the works with the community in mind to ensure the least disruption possible. This includes ensuring boat users will have access to the boat ramp over the weekend on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May.

We recognise this work may cause inconvenience and ask for your patience and support during these important works.
