Slip Road Maritime Precinct in Paynesville delayed and to restart in July 2023
Onsite works at the Slip Road Maritime Precinct in Paynesville have been delayed and are expected to restart this July.
East Gippsland Shire Council advises the community the delay is due to a review of the project's detailed design. This detailed design instructs the contractor on the work required and specification of materials. Acting General Manager Assets and Environment Sairam Jegatheeswaran said construction began in January 2022 with onsite piling works and offsite prefabrication.
Council expects to receive updated working drawings in June which will allow the construction to restart on early July
Ensuring the best outcome
Mr Jegatheeswaran said, "We have engaged a coastal and maritime consultancy to review the design and redesign any elements required. This will ensure the best outcome for the community."
Council expects to receive updated working drawings in June. This will allow the construction contractor, Carter Marine, to return to the site in the first week of July. The site fencing and the no boating zone will remain in place. The upgrade of the five-hectare site bordering the narrow McMillan Strait will include:
- New seawalls
- Boat ramp
- Upgrades to utilities
"We know many people are looking forward to the Slip Road upgrade, which will be another great feature to Paynesville and the Gippsland Lakes. When issues are identified, it is important to rectify no matter what stage a project is at. This can avoid more costly issues further down the track," Mr Jegatheeswaran said.
