Council Completes Upgrade to Whisper Bay Breakwater

Practical completion of the $3 million Whisper Bay Breakwater and Boat Ramp Project has been achieved, with the facility to be open for public use from Monday, 11 January 2016, according to the Whitsunday Regional Council.

Mayor Jenny Whitney said that the civil works for the breakwater and causeway were completed before Christmas, with the site clean-up finalized this week.

After the Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports inspected the facility in August last year to announce additional funding for this project, we undertook a tendering process and commenced construction works in September 2015,” Mayor Whitney said.

“The Queensland Government funded the $3 million project, with local contractors engaged on two of the three contracts and Council’s staff managing the delivery of the works,” she said.

The project has been completed within budget and an official opening is expected to be held in early February 2016.
