The upgrade of the Hastings boat ramp is back on track after damage to the cofferdam put work on hold. The cofferdam – a temporary structure enclosing the upgrade site that allows water to be pumped out for work to proceed – had buckled as a result of water pressure. It is currently being reinstalled with longer sheet piles being driven into the seabed, and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is reporting work is now “being advanced with a new approach allowing multiple construction activities to take place at the same time”.

“With this new approach underway, the works are being completed as quickly and safely as possible to get the project on track for completion for the boating season,” the council said.

Project delivery manager Derek Rotter said: “The construction site has been made safe and the contractor is working quickly to get the project back on track. At this stage it is too early to say how this will affect the timetable for delivery, but we remain hopeful that it will have a minimal impact on the project.”

The upgrade, which started in July, is a joint project between the council and Better Boating Victoria as part of the State Government’s commitment to upgrading six priority boat ramps across the state. The first stage includes replacing the existing ramp with a longer ramp and a connecting walkway between the new ramp and the floating pontoon. The second stage will involve dredging to enable all-tide access.
