Maintenance dredging work at Bandy Creek has been completed, according to the WA Government latest report.

The Department of Transport (DoT) reported that larger commercial fishing, charter industry and recreational vessels will now have safe access to Bandy Creek Boat Harbor, following the completion of the maintenance dredging project.

DoT Coastal Infrastructure General Manager, Steve Jenkins, said that the recent routine maintenance dredging operation, costing $1.1 million and undertaken every two years, had seen a total of 85,000 cubic meters of material removed from the harbor entrance.

At completion, the harbor entrance mouth was successfully dredged to double the depth it was prior to the works, providing safe access for larger vessels and limiting problems with future build-up of material,” Mr Jenkins said.

“As part of the work the harbor slipway, weir and commercial mooring areas were also dredged providing deeper navigable depths for vessels,” added Mr Jenkins.

DoT contractor CGC Dredging used its specially modified dredge vessel Cooper II to complete the campaign which commenced in May.
