'No tender' for Correa Bay boat ramp
Central Coast Council has received no "suitable" tenders for the design and construction of Correa Bay boat ramp at Woy Woy.
A report to tonight's council meeting recommends the council negotiate with "any contractor".
It does not recommend inviting fresh tenders because "the market has responded".
Only one tender - from Bell Rock Marine Pty Ltd from Rainbow Flat - was received when council invited tenders in March.
The project is the result of public consultation in 2012 as part of the development of the Brisbane Water Public Wharves and Boat Ramps Usage Study.
"No further community consultation specific to this contract was deemed necessary,'' the report stated.
The study identified the project as a priority due to the poor state of the existing ramp and the need for enhancing the availability and accessibility to quality aquatic recreation experiences through improved infrastructure.
Proposed works include demolition of the existing ramp and construction of a new single lane boat ramp and fish cleaning table that complies with legislation, standards and guidelines.
