Anglers will have another option to chase bites soon in Moruya, thanks to a fishing platform to be installed this week in Russ Martin Park.
A Eurobodalla Shire Council spokesman said the timber platform would be connected to the shared path near the rotunda, extending out over the river by a few metres.
The shire’s infrastructure director Warren Sharpe said the structure would appeal to anglers and sightseers.
“We’re always grateful for grants from the NSW Government’s Recreational Fishing Trust that allow us to construct marine infrastructure such as this,” Mr Sharpe said.
“It gives the whole community more opportunities to experience our fantastic waterways.
“The fishing platform will be four-metres wide and made of timber decking on steel piles, extending over the river at the same level as the shared pathway nearby.
“The platform is wheelchair-accessible and handrails will cater for anglers with limited mobility.”
Mr Sharpe said the proposal for the fishing platform was developed in consultation with Batemans Bay Marine Park and the NSW Recreational Fishing Trust.
The platform is due to be finished by Christmas, weather permitting.
