WILCO Logistics Wins Townsville Breakwater Deal

WILCO Logistics Pty Ltd has been announced as the successful bid contractor on Breakwater Safety Works at the Port of Townsville.

Minister for Ports Mark Bailey said that the overall $1.5 million project will improve navigational safety at the Townsville Port by widening the entrance to the harbor, but does not involve any capital dredging works.

“This project is another step towards being able to accommodate larger vessels at the Townsville Port and will also improve the navigational safety of vessels already entering our harbor,” he said.

“Best of all, local North Queensland contractors will once again be engaged to complete important infrastructure improvement works, meaning more local jobs for this community.”

This project will kick off next month and we anticipate the works will be completed by the end of the year.

During the works period, a section of the far northern Breakwater (immediately adjacent to and including the work site) will be closed to public access for safety reasons.
