Boat Ramp Works

The Nhulunbuy Regional Sports fishing Club wishes to advise all Melville Bay Boat Ramp users that the old pontoon and walkway will be removed tomorrow, Saturday the 27.05.2017 to allow workers to place the footings in position for the new pontoon structure. Access to the car park, wash bays and single and double ramps will be unavailable for 3 days between 0200am – 0800am Sunday 28.05.2017, Monday 29.05.2017 and Tuesday the 30.05.2017 each day. Outside of these times, the double ramp will be available, however the low tide single ramp may be closed for up to 7 days due to construction activities. Boat owners are urged to consider alternate low tide access during this period. The new walkway and pontoon will be placed into position towards the end of June. The NRSFC apologises for any inconvenience caused during this 6 week construction phase of the Project.

We’ve bin collaborating! and look what we created……..

Town Board – Election Day 8th Apr

Residents are advised that the election of three representatives to the Nhulunbuy Town Board will be held on Saturday 8 April 2017 from 8am-6pm.

To vote visit the Nhulunbuy Corporation Head Office, 19 Westal Street Nhulunbuy NT 0880 opposite the Nhulunbuy Aquatic Centre.

Boat Ramp Wash Bay

The Nhulunbuy Regional Sports Fishing Club would like to advise that there are now 2 hoses provided to wash boat trailers at the wash bay.

Town TV Reception Update

Nhulunbuy Corporation would like to advise residents we have identified an issue with the retransmission of free-to-air Television networks in Nhulunbuy.

The issue appears to be isolated to different areas of the community, at intermittent times and affects some or all services. This unforeseen infrastructure fault (likely the result of nature) requires specialised and sensitive equipment to be sourced, constructed, freighted and installed by specialist contractors.

We are working as quickly as possible to secure rectification and have already commenced the procurement process, with a best-case scenario indicating at least one-week before services are fully restored and the issue resolved. Temporary solutions have been deployed in an attempt to reduce the fall-out/blackspot areas.

We appreciate everyone’s patience whilst our teams work diligently to restore this service to provide benefit to the Nhulunbuy Community.

Town Road Closure

We wish to advise the Nhulunbuy Corporation will be conducting essential road maintenance along Franklyn Street commencing tomorrow Tuesday 14 February 2017.

The road will be closed from the entrance of the Nhulunbuy Op Shop carpark through to the entrance of the Arnhem Club carpark. Access to the Woolworths carpark will remain as per normal.

Maintenance will run for roughly 3 business days pending weather conditions. If you require further information please contact our office on 8939 2200 during business hours.
