The City of Delta has issued a request for bids for the rehabilitation of the viewing wharf at Wellington Point Park.

The city notes that approval has been granted by the Ministry of Water, Land and Resource Stewardship and approval from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is expected soon for the project on River Road West in Ladner.

To facilitate the construction, timber elements may be removed temporarily, and the contractor is required to number the removed timber elements for re-installation, the city notes, adding that the contractor shall provide a plan showing the numbered timber elements upon request.

The contractor is to complete the job by Sept. 13.

Meanwhile, the city is also planning a replacement for boat launch ramp at Wellington Point.

The boat launch’s wooden float system was replaced in 2022 and included the installation of new piles to restrain the float system.

While the top three-quarters of the concrete ramp is in relatively sound condition, the lower quarter is deteriorated and broken with the waterside edge of the ramp being noticeably undermined, according to the city.

A complete replacement of the concrete ramp is required to ensure the continued function of the important community amenity, the city notes.

Subject to funding availability, and approvals from government, a tender call for construction is anticipated in spring of 2025, with the aim of completing the project between September 2025 and February 2026.
