Port Bonython jetty – a major sea terminal - received a major upgrade in the 2017-18 State Budget.
The 2.4 km-long Port Bonython jetty is a major import and export terminal used by approximately 35 ships every year.
On top of the upgrade, steel remediation works will be undertaken at points along the jetty and fire pump house platform, ensuring the sustainability of the jetty into the future.
The new funding for Port Bonython jetty is in addition to major refurbishment works that have been completed over the past few years to the walkways, the mooring point structures, and the underside of the loading platform, as well as the replacement of stairs, ladders and jetty approach.
Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan said the investments were crucial.
“We understand how important jetties can be to communities, particularly for local businesses, which is why we are committing this additional funding,” Mr Mullighan said.
“These projects are good for locals, good for visitors, good for the tourism industry, and good for business,” he said.
