The Andrews Labor Government is calling for tenders to deliver a major component of the $15 million Portarlington Safe Harbor development.
Member for Bellarine and Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water, Lisa Neville, said that the next stage of the development would include the construction of two rock breakwaters, a new finger jetty, pier improvements and a suite of marine industry access upgrades for the pier and harbor.
“The next phase of the Portarlington Safe Harbor development will transform the harbor over the next two years, delivering better facilities for the aquaculture industry and providing infrastructure for a future ferry,” Neville said.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning has briefed local stakeholders , land managers and Portarlington and Geelong community leaders on the progress in delivering the project.
The first stage of the project, which involved the construction of a new 175m section of Portarlington’s pier, was completed earlier this year.
The tender closes in early October.
