Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) Carpark Upgrade

Works on the Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) carpark will commence in mid-February, with the project delivering an enhanced facility for boaties and park users.

Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) Acting CEO Craig Walker said the new facility will include 40 additional carparks and 40 boat trailer parks.

“The works will not only improve area aesthetics but also environmental management in the vicinity,” Mr Walker said.

Works are anticipated to take three months to complete.

The VMR boat ramp and building will remain open during construction, with parking accessible via the adjacent public boat ramp parking area.

“GPC thanks the community for its understanding and patience during these works,” Mr Walker said.

“We look forward to providing this upgraded facility as part of our continued investment in community amenities.”
