Improvements for the facility

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Michael Whelan said traffic congestion during peak periods has been a problem for many years at the Cowes boat ramp. "This congestion increases the time it takes people to launch and retrieve their boats."

"The project will also improve public safety, improve drainage and the quality of water which enters the marine environment and reduce maintenance costs across the life of the car park," Cr Whelan concluded.
