Toronto Bay, Lake Macquarie: Exclusive Use this Saturday
16 February 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of a fireworks display at Toronto Bay, Lake Macquarie, this Saturday.
Maritime Regional Manager Hunter/ Inland Sonia McKay said boaters should keep clear of the bay in a radius of about 200 metres from the fireworks barge from 8pm to 10pm.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of a fireworks display for Variety the Children’s Charity,” Ms McKay said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should keep clear of this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Ms McKay said unauthorised vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a Maritime Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
