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.

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 new detached breakwater
  • installation of toilet block in the southern carpark.

Element Two of the project is under tender evaluation, with a contract expected to be awarded in early 2019. 

On-site works commenced 1 March 2019. 

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

Important public notice: The Clump Point boat ramp will be open for public use over the upcoming Easter /Anzac Day period. 

Opening times are from 5pm Thursday 18 April 2019 through to 5pm on Thursday 25 April 2019.  

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.  

Once the Element Two contract is awarded and TMR is aware how this will fit in with the overall works schedule, further project updates will be provided on the in-water works.
