We are thrilled to share the latest developments in the restoration of our local pontoons, which were affected by the 2022 flood. These much-loved waterfront access points – Jindalee Boat Ramp Park, Riverhills Recreation Hub, Centenary Rowing Club, and Amazons Place Park – are currently undergoing an extensive reconstruction process.
Each pontoon has undergone a meticulous redesign, emphasising the improvements in functionality, accessibility, and safety, all while bolstering resilience. An outstanding feature of these revamped pontoons is the removal of traditional Styrofoam, a contributor to ecological challenges during floods. Instead, our innovative design integrates aluminium-encased ‘air pillows’ to ensure buoyancy while minimising environmental impact. The designs also incorporate taller piles and stronger restraint systems to effectively endure future flood events.
While these enhancements have slightly extended our timeline, we’re confident the final result will be well worth the wait. We truly appreciate the community’s patience, and we’re excited about making it easier for you to enjoy the river once again.
Get ready to enjoy the upgraded pontoons:
