Shellharbour City Council has started work to reconstruct Reddall Reserve Boat Ramp
The works will involve:
Dewatering the area with a cofferdam so concrete works can take place safely
Installing graded rocks underneath the ramp for support
Installing 10 precast concrete panels on the lower section of the ramp
Pouring 2 cast-in situ slabs (approximately 220mm thick) on the upper section of the ramp
Installing armour stone (big rocks approximately 200-300mm in diameter) protection as the batter on either side of the concrete ramp.
This project started, March 2021. The program of work is 10 weeks, this may vary if impacted by weather or tidal conditions.

Community consulted on Lake Illawarra jetties
The NSW Government is seeking feedback from the Wollongong community on priority
upgrade work to Lake Illawarra’s public jetties.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment – Crown Lands is conducting an
online survey which will be followed by information sessions on its jetty upgrade program.
There are a number of public jetties that Crown Lands inherited from the former Lake
Illawarra Authority that are in need of repair.
The NSW Government has allocated $1.3 million from its COVID-19 stimulus program to
upgrade Lake IIlawarra jetties which are managed by Crown Lands.
The stimulus funding will see $390,000 allocated this financial year and $910,000 next
financial year to be targeted at priority jetty repairs and upgrades.
The Department is seeking community input to help determine which jetties are priorities
for the community and identify if all jetty structures are still used by the community.
Members of the public are invited to undertake a short online survey at this weblink by 30
January 2021 to provide comments on what jetty structures they would like to see given
Drop-in information sessions are also planned for 28 and 30 January. Residents can
register their interest in attending at the following weblink and will be sent further details
when available: https://arcg.is/yejGS
All interested residents are welcome to attend these information sessions to discuss
community priorities and learn more about the jetty upgrades.
The NSW Government will consider feedback from the community survey and public
meetings before finalising an upgrade program which is expected to commence in mid-
2021 to get priority public jetties back into use for the community.
