Thursday, 8th July 2021 The Member for Whitsunday, Amanda Camm MP, has called on the Department of Transport and Main Roads to improve substandard boat ramps.

“Residents are waiting for upgrades and improvements to the Shute Harbour boat ramp, to ensure safe access, parking and launch facilities. 

“The finished works of the Shute Harbour boat ramp are inadequate.

“They fall short of the expectations of the recreational fishing community and broader community.

“I am urging Minister Bailey to come and visit the Shute Harbour Boat Ramp facility, to work with Whitsunday Regional Council and the community to deliver the necessary improvements.

“The discussions that I have had with Whitsunday Regional Council highlight that there were no community consultations that took place prior to awarding the tender.

“The Whitsundays represents one of the largest boat registrations in Australia. These fees contribute to Queensland revenue and local infrastructure.

“Residents should not have to settle for substandard boat ramps.
