New Woodman Point facilities to help ease ramp rage

Recreational boat owners can expect fewer delays launching boats at peak times over summer south of Perth, with the doubling of ramp capacity at Woodman Point, one of the busiest facilities in the Perth metropolitan area.

Transport Minister Simon O'Brien today opened Stage One of the $2.9million project which has increased the number of boat launch ramps on site from four to eight and added a floating landing for more efficient boat handling and improved vessel access.

The project is part of a State-wide campaign to reduce waiting times at boat ramps and limit the concerning incidence of boat ‘ramp rage’.

“A central part of the campaign involves the education of boat owners in good ramp etiquette, which will limit the amount of time each person takes to launch and retrieve their vessel,” Mr O'Brien said.

“Skippers who fail to prepare their vessel for launch before they join the queue often delay others resulting in unnecessary anxiety, frustration and, increasingly, aggression.

“Information about launching ramp etiquette will be sent to Western Australia’s 89,000 registered recreational boat owners, about 90 per cent of whom use boat ramps.”

The Transport Minister said Department for Planning and Infrastructure compliance and education officers would attend busy ramps during summer to offer advice to users and add to the Western Australian Government’s commitment to delivering improved facilities for Western Australia’s recreational boat owners.

“Forecast growth in boat ownership has identified demand for another 34 launch ramp lanes across Perth by 2025 - nine south of the Swan river,” he said.

“The four new ramps at Woodman Point deliver nearly half of the forecast requirements for this area and a further two lanes are proposed for Port Kennedy.”

The Minister said future stages of the Woodman Point Recreational Boating Precinct would see the development of a boat stacker facility; refurbishment of the existing four launch ramp lanes; reconstruction of the existing trailer parking area; development of an expanded trailer parking area; and provision of land for commercial lease.
