Lo­cal firm wins Hillarys bid

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

A WANGARA com­pany has won a $4.9 mil­lion con­tract to re­place 30year-old fa­cil­i­ties at Hillarys Boat Har­bour and build boat pens at Two Rocks Ma­rina.

The Trans­port De­part­ment an­nounced the con­tract for Shore­wa­ter Marine on Fri­day, which coastal in­fra­struc­ture gen­eral man­ager Steve Jenk­ins said would im­prove marine fa­cil­i­ties at both sites.

“At Hillarys Boat Har­bour, 30-year-old float­ing con­crete jet­ties are at the end of their work­ing life and will be re­placed, al­low­ing for the in­stal­la­tion of a new mod­ern float­ing pen sys­tem,” he said.

“Staged de­mo­li­tion work will com­mence in July ahead of a year-long con­struc­tion phase.”

The con­tract, ex­pected to cre­ate an ex­tra six jobs, ac­counts for a large por­tion of works in the cur­rent $6 mil­lion Two Rocks Ma­rina up­grade.

Those works in­clude de­mo­li­tion of con­demned mar­itime struc­tures such as the orig­i­nal fuel jetty, and con­struc­tion of re­lo­cated boat pens this year.
