The fixed timber jetties at Broadmeadow and at Regal Pass in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh are currently being replaced with 300 metres of new floating jetties. They are being replaced for health and safety reasons at a cost of approximately £300,000.

The timber jetties were constructed, prior to the establishment of Waterways Ireland, by the Rivers Agency of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in the 1970s and 1980s and the costs are not available.
