Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes has applauded the completion of boating upgrades at Rowland Reserve in Bayview.

A NSW Government grant of $566,000 was provided to Northern Beaches Council to complete the works under the NSW Boating Now Program. The upgrades include new access pontoons at both the northern and southern boat ramps, providing a safer and more efficient means for boat users to launch and retrieve watercraft.

Improvements have also been made to boat-trailer parking areas and an additional wash-down space has been created, along with measures to prevent pollutants entering Winnererremy Bay.

“These upgrades provide higher-quality facilities for boat users and help reduce environmental impacts on the Pittwater estuary,” Rob Stokes said today.

“The community can now take advantage of Rowland Reserve’s safer access to our wonderful waterway.

“I’m delighted Northern Beaches Council has been able to deliver these improvements at this key recreational hub,” Rob Stokes said.

NSW Boating Now is a $70 million NSW Government funding program supporting initiatives that enhance the boating experience in NSW, including the delivery of recreational boating infrastructure across NSW waterways.
