Project info

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) received the final environmental approval for the Mission Beach Clump Point boating infrastructure upgrade project from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) on 29 June 2018.

The project is being delivered in 2 phases under 2 separate contracts. 

A contract for the delivery of Element One of the project was awarded to MGN Civil Pty Ltd in mid-December 2018.

Element One works include:

  • additional boat ramp lane
  • upgrade existing breakwater
  • upgrade existing car park and turning area
  • installation of a new detached breakwater
  • installation of a toilet block in the southern carpark. 

On-site works started 1 March 2019. 

An extensive traffic management plan will is in place during construction which includes measures to avoid impacts on the environmental and cultural values of the area, avoids impact to cassowaries and minimises disruption caused by construction traffic.

Boat ramp closure: The Clump Point public boat ramp will be closed for public use for the remainder of Element One construction, with completion scheduled for December 2019. Access for the existing commercial users will be maintained throughout construction.  

A contract for the delivery of Element Two of the project was awarded to The Jetty Specialist in May 2019. 

Element Two works include construction of: 

  • an access jetty
  • 2 berthing pontoons
  • a floating walkway
  • 6 pen berths
  • 5 swing moorings. 

Element Two works will extend into next year with completion expected by mid-2020. 

The detached breakwater needs to be in place to provide protected waters for Element Two's pontoon and berth construction. 

TMR will work with the contractor to enable public access to the boat ramp while works continue in the first half of 2020, keeping in mind, there will be some necessary full closures for short periods.
