04 NEWS FRIDAY APRIL 14 2017 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Fishos could again be waiting in long lines to launch their boats at Dundee Beach - such as this picture taken last month Picture: SUPPLIED TRAFFIC controllers will be in pace at Dundee Beach to monitor up to 150 fishos expected to arrive for angling competitions. The Dundee Beach boat ramp is expected to be a popular location following the completion of a $4.5 million upgrade this year. A Planning and Infrastructure Department spokesman said traffic controllers would be at the location from today until Monday. During this busy time, the new boat ramp will be for the sole use of recreation anglers. The old boat ramp will be reopened for the exclusive use of commercial boat launching, he said. NT Police will also be focusing on unregistered quad bikes and buggies. Anyone caught riding an unregistered all terrain vehicle on a road or public area faces fines of $1540. Last week police fined a man and woman for riding quad bikes on Whitewood Rd, Howard Springs.
