Work on the jetty began in June 2011 and it is expected to be completed sometime in October 2011.
Built at a cost of around RM1.5 million, this new jetty shall be able to cater for up to twelve boats and will present a nice face-lift to the riverside fronting P2. Utilization of this jetty could be expected to be low, at least during the initial stages as not many residents possess a boat. Boaters are also hampered by the lack of a proper boat ramp but we have been informed by management a new ramp is definitely in the works in Precinct 4, where earthworks are currently underway. We hope this ramp will be built sooner rather than later and it may well be an attraction for buyers of properties in P4.
Anglers from P2 shall be able to fish off this jetty in due course but please be mindful that the jetty is off-limits between 10:00 pm – 8:00 am, a policy that is unpopular among the fishing fraternity but warranted nevertheless for the peace and quite that nearby homes deserve. The Committee will discuss with the management whether a jetty or even a floating platform dedicated to fishing and located away from the homes might be possible. Then the fisherman could fish around the clock if they wish to.
Let us hear your opinions.
