The Ross Street Boat Ramp at Newstead will be closed from June 2017. The ramp is being closed due to safety concerns with the interaction with construction works and heavy vehicles. It is expected that the ramp will be closed from June 2017 to September 2018.
- The short road (to the ramp) will be closed and eventually replaced by a garden / parkland.
- Paddlers will still have access to the boat ramp via a side access during the rebuild. This access will be through the current parkland.
- Post build the boat ramp will remain for paddler access to Breakfast Creek.
- Paddlers can still park their cars along Ross Street and Durong Street.
