Updates and announcements

What’s happening now?

Piling works for the new structure have now started. The new piles are being installed using the barges that are currently on site. The piles are being screwed into position and then hammered into the sea bed.

The piling work will take up to three months to complete, excluding Sundays and public holidays, weather permitting.

There will be some noise associated with the work. The installation of the piles will generate short periods of louder noise while the new piles are installed. We will make every effort to minimise its impact.

There will be minimal traffic changes. Most work will be carried out from the water on vessels that travel from White Bay. These vessels will transport all materials and the majority of construction workers to and from the site.

What work is coming up?

The next step of the work will be constructing the deck including placing beams and the concrete deck while finalising the piling for the marina component.

Project background

Elizabeth Bay Marina is located at the end of Ithaca Road, Elizabeth Bay, near Beare Park. The marina has existed for over 100 years and is a popular place for boaters, kayakers, residents and tourists visiting the area.

Over time the timber elements have deteriorated and Roads and Maritime is now proposing to upgrade the marina to improve safety and amenity for water users and the local community.

The marina upgrade will provide:

  • Improved marina facilities for the boating community
  • More reliable operations aimed at preventing damage to boats and the marina due to flooding at high tides
  • Improved facilities, better security, and safer water access for kayaks, paddleboards and other small vessels
  • Improved café facilities located at the end of the marina
  • Improved access to the marina, including disabled access
  • A boating destination marina to give boaters access to facilities and amenities, and to improve their Sydney Harbour boating experience.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime will continue to engage with the community and other stakeholders to provide an update on the project as it progresses.  Notification letters will be sent to the community and key stakeholders to inform of work before the work starts.
