The Liberal National Government has completed a $3.8 million reconstruction of the biggest jetty at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbor.
Transport Minister Bill Marmion said that the two-year improvement project had transformed Jetty 2 and was an important part of the harbor’s ongoing jetty replacement program.
“The project involved a partial demolition, piling work and implementation of new floating infrastructure and was partly funded by existing boat pen fees,” Mr Marmion said.
“Boat users will benefit from a number of improvements including the upgrading of 66 boat pens, providing new opportunities for boat owners wanting to house their vessel at the popular harbor.”
The replaced section of Jetty 2 is now home to 29 pens of 15 meters in length, 21 pens of 18 meters in length, 15 pens of 20 meters in length and one multi-use pen.
The jetty now provides additional pens for new customers seeking to accommodate their vessel at the harbor.
