Boating safety reinforced as Old4New visits Geraldton

The importance of safety on the water will be in the spotlight next week as the Department of Transport's (DoT) very successful Old4New lifejacket upgrade program visits Geraldton.

The importance of safety on the water will be in the spotlight next week as the Department of Transport's (DoT) very successful Old4New lifejacket upgrade program visits Geraldton.

The Old4New opportunity which is part of a visit to the region by DoT's Marine Safety Education Trailer, gives skippers a chance to exchange old, damaged, obsolete or foam filled lifejackets for a voucher to be used when purchasing a new one.

DoT Safety Education Manager Laurie Adams said the popularity of boating in Geraldton had seen it targeted to boost the number of regional skippers benefiting from the Old4New program, delivered in conjunction with the Royal Life Saving Society of Western Australia.

"People visiting the safety trailer will also be able to get the latest safe boating advice from education officers and view proposed changes to aquatic use areas off the Geraldton coast as part of the review announced by DoT last month and available for comment until May 26, 2017 (www.transport.wa.gov.au/geraldtonreview)," Mr Adams said.

Skippers can visit the trailer at the following locations:

  • Batavia Coast Marina Boat Ramp
    Friday April 28, 2017.
    Old4New opportunity between 9.00 am and 10.00 am only.
     
  • Geraldton Show
    Saturday April 29 - Sunday April 30, 2017.

The Old4New initiative spearheads a State-wide education campaign promoting the benefits of wearing lifejackets at all times while boating.

"The aim is to change people's behaviour and improve the safety of people who enjoy boating in WA," Mr Adams said.

"Voucher limits and restrictions are in place to ensure the benefits of the program apply to as many vessels as possible. To avoid disappointment it's important that people wanting to participate in the program read the Old4New guidelines at www.transport.wa.gov.au/lifejackets to check if their jackets qualify for an upgrade and to find out more information."

Maintenance dredging will commence at Bandy Creek Boat Harbour on Sunday 23 April.

The Bandy Creek boat ramp will be temporarily unavailable between 9.00 am and 12.00 pm for the launch of the dredge vessel Cooper II. There may also be restricted access to the car park area at this time.

Boat users are advised to use the Esperance Beach town boat ramp as an alternative launch during this period. The Bandy Creek boat ramp is expected to be available again after 12.00 pm.

Maintenance dredging will remove some 60,000 cubic metres of sand from the harbour entrance over a three month period. Dredging activity is undertaken every two years to ensure all commercial fishing, charter industry and recreational vessels have safe access to Bandy Creek Boat Harbour.

Wheels in motion for regional cycling plans

Bike plans for the future of Western Australia's regional cycling network are now underway.

Bike plans for the future of Western Australia's regional cycling network are now underway.

A/Managing Director of Policy, Planning and Investment at the Department of Transport Steve Beyer said the development of the regional bike plans will complement the State's long-term vision for the expansion of cycling facilities by setting blueprints for WAs regional areas.

"The bike network plans will guide the delivery of strategic cycling infrastructure to meet the growing need for convenient, safe cycling routes and end-of-trip facilities," Mr Beyer said.

"There will be a focus on supporting the growth plans of regional cities and towns, linking them together and with key tourism attractions such as trails and landmarks."

The investment of $280,000 will go towards the regional bike plans for:

  • The City of Bunbury and Shires of Capel, Dardanup and Harvey.
  • The City of Busselton.
  • The Shire of Nannup.
  • The Shire of Augusta-Margaret River.
  • The City of Greater Geraldton.

The plans will help to ensure local infrastructure provides opportunities for greater recreational activities and supports the appeal for significant sporting events.

Bike plans for other regional areas are being considered and will be confirmed in the second half of 2017.

The regional bike plans are being developed collaboratively with the South West Development Commission, local government and community groups.
