Updates and announcements

What’s happening now?

The contractor has established the construction site including:

  • a crane barge for the removal of building demolition and piles
  • a second barge on the water to house construction material and equipment
  • a boom is surrounding the construction area to maintain a safe distance from other vessels in the area
  • silt fences to minimise sediment movement outside construction zones
  • management of removed material to reuse and recycle material as much as possible.

What work is coming up?

The next stage of work (subject to relevant approvals) includes:

  • establishment of a site compound for construction staff and equipment
  • project signage attached to the construction fencing.

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.
