Redlands MP Matt McEachan said Volunteer Marine Rescue would be better able to respond to emergencies on Moreton Bay.

“The jetty and pontoon will enable the rescue boats to be launched and be ready and waiting to go,” he said.

“Currently there could be potentially tragic delays with ramp congestion and at low tide it is very shallow, slowing the launch process.

“This is an important initiative for boatie safety.

“Locals love the bay but things can go wrong quickly and this project will enable help to get there sooner.”
