STAGE one of the Ayton boat ramp project is now complete, with a new pontoon to be installed early next year.

The ramp, which provides access to the Bloomfield River, was funded by the state government at a cost of $467,000.

“This has been a big project for the Ayton community, so I’m pleased to see work complete on time and on budget,” a government spokesperson said.

“The upgrade has seen the boat ramp rebuilt to keep boaties safe and make sure the structure meets current all tide standards.”

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said stage two would be delivered in 2023.

“The next phase of works includes the installation of a new pontoon next to the ramp on the downstream side,” he said.
