Beresford Foreshore Protection Project Awarded

Geraldton based civil contractor Central Earthmoving has been awarded the contract to construct coastal protection works along the Beresford Foreshore, one of the City’s largest Capital Work projects to date.

Stretching two kilometers in length, the first phase of the Beresford Foreshore Coastal Protection and Enhancement Project involves the construction of a 100m breakwater extension to the detached breakwater, a 45m extension to the existing groyne and three shore based rock revetment structures to mitigate the effects of erosion.

“This year the City will be investing a record $78 million in building and renewing infrastructure focusing on projects that will transform our economy whilst preserving and maintaining our lifestyle,” City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Shane Van Styn, said.

“The Beresford Foreshore Protection and Enhancement Project not only protects $55 million of state and local government infrastructure at risk due to coastal erosion, it’s construction will also inject millions of dollars back into the local economy.”

The Beresford Coastal Protection works, which extend from Marina Beach in the south to Trigg Street in the north, are scheduled to begin in January 2017.

The second phase of the project which includes coastal enhancement works to replace amenities already lost to erosion include landscaping, benches, bicycle racks, playground equipment, lighting, etc.

The $23.1 million project is jointly funded with Royalties for Regions contributing $17.28 million, Mid West Ports Authority $4 million with the City contributing $1.85.
