Bullock Point Boat Ramp & Floating Walkway

About the project

Pensar was engaged for the construction of a three-lane boat ramp and floating walkway at Bullock Point. The facility was designed for both recreational boating and barge loading and unloading, with two of the lanes constructed to take barge loads.
The upgraded facility was constructed in the footprint of the existing unofficial boat ramp, with only a slight deviation due to the size increase. Works ensured that there was minimal impact to the Great Sandy Strait and FHA.
