Port Hughes Boat Ramp Project Includes Dredging

District Council of the Copper Coast has awarded the Port Hughes boat ramp project to Civil Tech Pty Ltd.

Upgrading of the Boating facility at Port Hughes will include construction of a new six lane concrete boat ramp, deepening of the existing harbor facility, reshaping and raising the breakwaters, and construction of a concrete wharf for berthing.

The earthworks deepening of the harbor basin will be undertaken by the creation of coffer dams which will be dewatered to allow the work to be undertaken in dry conditions in two stages:

  • Stage 1 – an inner excavation stage to enable the construction of the boat ramp;
  • Stage 2 – an outer excavation stage to complete the basin excavation and enable construction of the wharf.

During Stage 1, excavation the existing boat facility will remain open for boat users at all times, however when stage 2 works are undertaken some closures will be required.

The extent of works for 2016 have been based around a project closure of early October 2016 through to Easter 2017. If the project cannot be completed before October 2016 a second stage has been allowed for beyond Easter 2017.
