Popular Stories

PLANS are underway to upgrade the Manners Street boat ramp at Lions Park in Seymour, allowing for easier access to the Goulburn River after the impacts of last year’s floods.

The upgrade will be delivered through a State Government investment in boating infrastructure through the Better Boating Fund, with the Manners Street ramp among several others prioritised for enhancements.

Upgrades will be funded through the Better Boating Fund via boaters’ registration and license fees.

Mitchell Shire Council Mayor Fiona Stevens said the upgrade would rejuvenate the park and better cater to boating enthusiasts in the Goulburn region.

“We are thrilled to see the Victorian Government’s investment in the Manners Street boat ramp, which will improve access to the beautiful Goulburn River,” she said.

“This project will enhance the boating experience for our community, and will also revitalise Lions Park, which was significantly impacted by last year’s floods.”

The ramp currently features a single-lane concrete ramp, an adjacent fixed jetty, and parking facilities, with the upgrade to be planned and designed with the assistance of engineering firm Confluence through consultation with stakeholders and facility users.

Following the functional review, stakeholder workshops and feedback survey results, concept designs will be developed and presented for consultation in the coming months.
