Improvement Works to Commence at Queens Wharf

Works on Stage A of the Queens Wharf Masterplan which is partly funded through the NSW Boating Now Program are set to commence on 1 June.

The Stage A works will increase the existing amenity of the site through extension of the existing wharf at multiple levels, boat ramp widening, the addition of a second access ladder, carpark and footpath works, and landscaping.

Maitland Mayor, Cr Loretta Baker, says ‘I’m really excited that Council is commencing work on Stage A of the Queens Wharf Masterplan which will increase useability of Queens Wharf and enhance river access to and from Morpeth.

‘Morpeth is a wonderful village with so much to offer visitors and locals alike, so being able to enhance river access in and out of the area will allow greater visitation and provide improved recreation for our locals’.

While Stage A works occur, there will be periods of limited and no access to Queens Wharf.

Once construction commences on the boat ramp, public access to the ramp will be limited to the hours between 7.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday.

Outside these hours there will be no access to the boat ramp.

In addition, once construction commences in mid-June on the wharf extension, there will be no access to the wharf for the duration of the project.

The works are expected to be complete by August 2020.

The remaining stages of the Queens Wharf Masterplan are subject to funding and land acquisition.
