Boat Ramp Pontoon

Image of pontoon on Kaiapoi River outside CoastguardThe Boat ramp pontoon is the first pontoon installation in an area of the river soon to be known as the ‘Marine Precinct.’ This zone, which includes the wharf, will service boaties and encourage more river users.

This newly pontoon is located outside the Coastguard, near the town centre. It is for temporary moorings such as pick-ups and drop-offs only. Overnight stays are not permitted.

A second, larger pontoon is to be installed between the wharf and bridge once dredging of the area and river navigation channels has been carried out. It is anticipated this work will be completed by September 2019.
