Budd Park rises from the floods as boating upgrade is completed

13 September 2017

Murwillumbah’s popular Budd Park boat ramp has been given a new lease on life six months after it was ravaged by floods.

Mr  George  said  $84,850  was  provided  under  the  NSW  Government’s  Boating  Now program to improve boaties’ access to the Tweed River.

“The  recently  completed  upgrade  involved  relocating  the  pontoon  to  a  more  suitable location within the Budd Park precinct to improve access.

“Boaties can now secure their vessels to the pontoon while they enjoy a day in the sun at Budd Park or explore all Murwillumbah has to offer.”

Mr George said the project is a great example of what can be achieved by working with stakeholders such as Tweed Shire Council under Boating Now.

“The  Council  carried  out  the  work  on  behalf  of  Roads  and  Maritime  Services  and contributed $15,000 to the overall upgrade,” Mr George said.

“The work will ensure water sport lovers continue to make the most of Budd Park and the Tweed River now and into the future.”
