York Civil Wins Broome Wharf Deal

The Kimberley Ports Authority has appointed York Civil Pty Ltd to design and build the $24.15 million extension to Broome’s wharf, Transport Minister Dean Nalder has announced.

The Port of Broome is the main deepwater port servicing the Kimberley and makes a significant contribution to the region’s economy, creating jobs for local residents,” Mr Nalder said.

The project involves removing sections of the original wharf’s concrete deck to access the steelwork underneath, replacing corroded sections of the steelwork, reinstating the concrete deck, and refurbishing and repairing the supporting piles.

Construction will start later this year, with the project due for completion by the end of 2016. The works will be carried out in a way which minimizes the impact on port services.

York Civil has a long history of undertaking similar marine works at ports across Australia.

In collaboration with the Kimberley Ports Authority, it has developed an approach which avoids closure of the wharf thus minimizing the impact on vital operations that support the region.
