Volunteer Marine Rescue Carpark Upgrade

Works on the Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) Gladstone carpark have reached completion, with the project delivering additional parking facilities for boaties and park users.

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

“The works have not only improved the area's aesthetics, but also environmental management in the vicinity," Mr Walker said.

“With the area now sealed it will reduce dust and provide all-weather access for users.

“We are proud to provide this upgraded facility as part of our continued investment in community amenities.

“The $1M upgrade is now open to the public and I know it will be well-utilised by many local boaties.

​“We would like to thank the community for their understanding and patience during the works," Mr Walker said. ​​
