Changed boating conditions at Broadwater

BOATERS are advised to be aware of changed conditions on the Richmond River at Broadwater while river bank maintenance and stabilisation work is carried out.

Roads and Maritime Services will carry out work on weekdays from March until around late July, weather permitting.

Work will be carried out along the eastern riverbank north of Broadwater, at the meeting of Rattle and Boundary Creeks.

Boaters are asked to exercise caution and pay attention to control vessels, lighting and signs.

Temporary speed and wash restrictions are in place and skippers should keep a safe distance from work vessels.

This navigation warning remains in place for the duration of the work.

The area will be marked with inflatable buoys and monitored by control vessels.

Roads and Maritime reminds people to wear a lifejacket when boating, especially in vessels smaller than 4.8 metres when alone, at night or offshore.
