Updates and announcements

What is happening now?

The building and berth structures of the Elizabeth Bay Marina are now clearly defined.

A crane barge will be on site for pile testing work, including lifting pile sleeves and some minor concrete work. This work will start on Monday 5 February 2018 and will take up to four weeks. Some intermittent pile hammering may be required and will generate some noise. We will make all efforts to reduce the noise as much as possible.

The temporary work zone will remain for part of the Ithaca Road carpark for the duration of construction work. Council has installed work zone signage that will be in place until the completion of the work.

Additional car spaces will be required for the work to relocate gas and water utilities and for concrete and steel delivery. We will make every effort to reduce the number of spaces that are closed during this work, and whenever possible will reopen spaces during out of work hours. Closure dates are listed on the notification board attached to the site hoarding.

Up to eight additional spaces of the Ithaca Road carpark will be temporarily closed for electrical work required for the new marina facility from Tuesday 6 February 2018. Cars that are parked in the carpark will receive a leaflet to notify of these works.

Our work hours are between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday and between 8am and 1pm on Saturday.

There may be short term traffic impacts while work vehicles enter and exit the car park. Workers will be on site to direct traffic as necessary.

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.
