Channels, markers and speed limits change

Boating skippers need to be aware of new speed limits, new channels and markers in Brisbane Water, according to boating safety officer Mr Mark Raward at NSW Maritime.

Speed limits throughout Brisbane Water are currently under review.

Mr Raward said that, for now, boaters should follow existing speed signs, especially on the approach to the Rip Bridge.

The speed limit at Wagstaffe has changed from eight knots no wash to four knots.

New four knot signage has been located to improve visibility for boaters.

Additional yellow markers have been installed along the unofficial north western channel that will direct the majority of traffic away from residents' properties on the southern foreshore.

The old north-south channel has been reopened so there are now two alternate channels allowing vessels to bypass Wagstaffe without using the main channel.

Deep draft vessels should continue using the main four knot channel along the southern foreshore.

This is lit between sunset and sunrise.

Hardy's Bay is currently eight knots but the Hardy's Bay Residents' Group has been working with Roads and Maritime Services to make the bay four knots and to install additional signage on both sides of the southern cardinal market at the entrance to the bay.
