Boat signs launched

NEW boating safety signage will be installed at Westport Park and 39 other priority boat ramps across NSW in a project to increase boating safety and education.
Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams said the NSW government provided $55,000 for the project to improve and streamline boating safety signage across the state.
“Roads and Maritime Services is working with local councils including Port Macquarie-Hastings Council at key boat ramps and launching facilities to install the signs,” she said.
“Signage with older messages will be removed at the same time as the new signs are installed.
“This is the first time a collaborative approach has been taken to install advisory signs at boat ramps in NSW to streamline the experience for boating customers and help improve boating safety.”
Signs feature a combination of yellow and black diamond shaped icons to alert boaters about the need to keep to the right of the channel, to be aware of sudden weather changes, to observe narrow channels, to watch for overhead cables and to keep an eye out for paddle craft or other hazards.
