Local firm wins Hillarys bid
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.
