Fund may go to Patonga boat ramp and Woy Woy wharf
The NSW Boating Now fund has allocated $3.6 million to the "Hawkesbury River, Pittwater and Brisbane Water Region".
This is expected to be spent on "priority regional projects" up to the end of 2019.
Only one of those projects is specified for the Peninsula and that is the Dark Corner Boat Ramp at Patonga.
Brisbane Water Wharves are lumped together and no individual wharf identified.
The dark corner project involves construction of a formal car park to improve access and safety for users of the ramp and increase the parking available to meet increasing demand.
The priority wharves on Brisbane Water expenditure will be to "upgrade priority wharves on Brisbane Water to improve safe access and provide disabled access".
The priority wharves may include Woy Woy wharf, but other locations in the running include the Penrith foreshore and Nepean River access points, Wisemans Ferry Boat Ramp, Narrabeen Lake Dinghy Storage, a storage shed at North Narrabeen and two Scotland Island Wharfs.
The Boating Now funding announcement said "The total regional allocation is based on estimated projects costs and the proposed financial contributions from Council and other delivery partners for individual projects.
"The total regional allocation may be subject to variation following further negotiations with Councils to confirm project scope, design, timeframes, funding contributions and the most efficient project delivery method."
