Dam­aged jetty re­opens to pub­lic

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Depart­ment of Trans­port has re­opened Como Jetty to the pub­lic as it car­ries out main­te­nance.

The jetty was closed in late Au­gust 2016 by the depart­ment to carry out pro­grammed main­te­nance on sec­tions of the old tim­ber un­der­deck sup­port beams which re­quired re­place­ment.

Whilst car­ry­ing out these works fur­ther sig­nif­i­cant de­te­ri­o­ra­tion was found in­side the sleeved tim­ber sup­port piles.

These piles now re­quire to­tal re­place­ment given their poor con­di­tion.

The depart­ment is aware of the im­por­tance of the Como Street Jetty and is pro­gress­ing these is­sues as a mat­ter of pri­or­ity.

Como Jetty is open again but still needs re­pairs.
