New dock to help with marina wait list says city (8 photos)

Funding for the project came from a special top up of gas tax money

Back in May, city council decided that it would use $394,000 of the $4.8 million in special gas tax revenue it received from the province to replace one of the ageing dock structures at Bellevue Marina.

On Friday, the new structures went in, replacing D Dock, which the city says had reached the end of its useful life.

"Repairs from our marine contractor were no longer sufficient to ensure proper flotation and rigidity of the dock and fingers," said Brent Lamming, director of Community Services, in an email to SooToday. 

The new dock project also includes the addition of an extra six slips, which, Lamming said, will help shorten the wait list for serviced slips at Bellevue.

E Dock, which is serviced, and B Dock, which isn't, were both replaced in 2018.
