Maybe they could put a tram on it

The excitement of a nights fishing got you out there.
But when the time came to go home, and you look towards the car park its a long way, and my legs are forty years older.
Take a trolley to carry your fish back to the car or cleaning table, you'll be buggered if you try carrying everything. :water:

UPDATE Amendment to the construction, Tuesday, June 19th, 2018 Looks like we're getting some extra !

Long Jetty rounds the corner
THE Long Jetty at Port Welshpool is on track to be completed in March 2019.
South Gippsland Shire Council said the jetty rehabilitation project is progressing well, within budget and on schedule.
Structural work has reached the unique curved section of the jetty, posing a challenge for the surveyor and construction process in setting out the radius. Fortunately modern technology has made it easier. The slipway area and shed are within reach.
Extra features have been added including the construction of an expanded head to the jetty and an extra area to the slipway deck.
Although these additions will push out the completion date to March 2019, they will improve deep water channel fishing access and jetty amenity.
Further information signs will also be added if funding permits.
Mayor Cr Lorraine Brunt was pleased the project is on track.
“The Long Jetty Rehabilitation Project has been a major project for our community and it is fantastic to hear it should be delivered within budget,” she said.
“We cannot wait to see the finished product so everyone can enjoy the jetty again. This will be a great achievement for both Port Welshpool and the region.”
Port Welshpool Working Group vice president Vern Suckling said the community was eagerly awaiting the reopening of the jetty.
“It is a talking point around town, for sure,” he said.
“The working group has had a few preliminary discussions as to what we can do to celebrate the opening, but nothing has been finalised yet.”
