Latest Update - 10 May 2022

Paynesville’s much-anticipated Slip Road Maritime Precinct project on Burrabogie Island is progressing, with work on an improved design set to begin.

The upgrade of the five-hectare site bordering the narrow McMillan Strait will include new seawalls, boardwalk, boat ramp, jetties, parking, pathways and upgrades to utilities.

In late 2021, Council engaged local marine services firm Carter Marine Group to deliver the first construction package of the project. Works commenced in January 2022 with onsite piling works and offsite prefabrication.

Council recently engaged a contractor to carry out further offshore geotechnical works, which will be used to update and improve the design.

Carter Marine Group will shortly temporarily demobilise from the project site to work on another project in the Lakes Entrance area. The geotechnical contractor will then mobilise in mid-May for a week. Carter Marine will later remobilise to complete the first construction package following redesign and ordering of further necessary material. Council will provide further updates prior to remobilisation.

In the meantime, detailed design of further stages, including carpark works, is progressing.

The project, due to be completed in June 2023, is funded by the Victorian Government, through its Infrastructure Stimulus Fund and Regional Infrastructure Fund along with the Australian Government through its Community Development Grants Program.

Piling works are progressing with the services jetty piles nearing completion and piling of the boat ramp to commence shortly. Fabrication of precast elements for the services jetty has commenced. The overall design is being reviewed in response to the thickness and settlement of the lake bed and further geotechnical works will be completed in April.

Design is progressing for the Harbour sea wall and civil/landscaping works. The scope of works has been increased to incorporate drainage works following a review of previous CCTV footage of the existing drainage lines. Pavement options for the primary parking and overflow parking are being considered.

15 March 2022

This project originates from Council’s adoption of the Paynesville Maritime Precinct Masterplan.

The project has attracted significant investment from both the Australian Government and the Victorian State Government in providing grant funding.

When complete, the Slip Road Maritime Precinct will provide:

  • A new boat ramp catering for marine businesses and overflow tourism activities
  • Two new pontoon jetties providing much needed additional berthing and a kayak landing
  • A services jetty for minor works
  • A new carpark with formalised boat trailer parking, overflow parking and an area supporting marine businesses
  • New boardwalk and paths with integrated landscaping and Aboriginal art
  • New seawalls better protecting all infrastructure

Construction of the Slip Road Maritime Precinct development commenced in January 2022, with Carter Marine Group the successful tenderer for Construction Package 1.

The current works underway are as follows:

  • Piling works occurring for the southern seawall and services jetty
  • Fabrication of elements has commenced off-site for the services jetty and the boat ramp
  • Two test sites were also implemented to record settlement of the lake bed under rock layers
  • Further off-shore geotechnical investigations are being scheduled to inform future piling and pavement design
  • Delivery of additional piles is also expected shortly following delays with the galvanising process

The planning and design of construction packages 2 and 3 is also progressing for the Harbour seawall reconstruction and larger carpark works.


Overview

Construction Package 1 – marine package including seawalls, boardwalk, boat ramp, jetties and pontoons

Construction Package 2 – Harbour seawall reconstruction and civil/landscaping works behind Harbour seawall, with tendering due to be advertised in June 2022.

Construction Package 3 – Remaining civil and landscaping works within the large carpark including all services and utility connections, with work on site due to commence after completion of package 1 in 2023.
