Proposed Anson Road Dock
At the April 11th Mayne Island meeting CRD prepared visuals of plans for new Anson Road dock and for changes Miners Bay Dock. Ted Robbins announced that quotes will go out after completion of the archaeological and environmental studies.
Anson Road dock will have 720 linear feet of dock space compared to the current 180 linear feet at Horton Bay. The current Horton Bay dock will be dismantled and replaced by the Anson Road dock after AR is completed.
There will be parking for 15 vehicles plus a turn-around.
The current T-float (in dark brown) will be replaced by a concrete float (in green) in order to lessen the effects of ferry wake.
