Point Peron Boat Ramp and Launching Facility, City of Rockingham
Walcon Marine worked closely with the City of Rockingham on this project which was completed in October 2012. The Point Peron boat ramp and launching facility is regarded as one of the best facilities in the state and includes 2 twin lane boat ramps and pontoon systems as well as a central access pontoon system specifically designed to cater for disabled access to vessels.
This project included the demolition of the existing wooden fixed ramp structures, redesigning the abutments to suit the new pontoons as well as the construction of a central specific disabled access pontoon and associated civil works.
As one of the states busiest ramp facilities, Walcon managed the project in such a way that the boating community were not hindered by keeping one ramp open at all times.
The Point Peron facility experiences up to 500 vehicle/boat movements per day and the Walcon system has proved to be reliable, sturdy and structurally sound.
