Brunswick Heads harbour on track for safety upgrade

Early site investigation work will start in October on the Brunswick Heads Harbour upgrade as part of a $205 million program to modernise coastal hubs in regional NSW.

NSW Maritime Executive Director Mark Hutchings said $2.8 million has been allocated to ensure harbour infrastructure meets current safety, accessibility and design standards.

“This is a popular boat harbour on the far north coast of NSW and the upgrade will help improve access for locals and tourists,” Mr Hutchings said.

“We’re improving accessibility for vessel users in tidal environment and also installing metered water and power services for each berth.

“Transport for NSW has engaged surveyors to determine boundaries, depths and existing layout of the harbour. This data will be used to develop design options for the on-water infrastructure upgrade. 

“Early investigation work will also include identifying utility services and completing a range of environmental assessments. Maintenance work will continue to be carried out as needed.

“The project is in early stages of development and these crucial investigation works will inform the project planning and design stage.

“The community will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the project and concept design in the coming months.”
