Coomera Dredged Sediment Facility Contract Awarded

The contract for the construction of a $3 million Coomera dredge facility, aimed to boost the multi-million dollar marine industry in the area, has been awarded to a Gold Coast based company.

Acting Ports Minister, Steven Miles, said that the contract to construct the Coomera Regional Dredged Sediment Management Facility (CRDSMF) had been awarded to Synergy Resource Management PTY LTD.

This $3 million facility will be the first of its kind on the Gold Coast and is a significant project for the city’s multi-million dollar marine industry which will mean certainty of access and safe navigation in the Coomera river,” Mr Miles said.

The Gold Coast Marine Precinct at Coomera is home to more than 100 businesses employing 2,500 people. As well as being an important ongoing provider of jobs for Queenslanders, this project will help minimize potential environmental impacts by managing the fine, silty mud sediment found in the upper sections of the Coomera River that is not suitable for riverbank or beach replenishment,” Mr Miles added.

For many years the Coomera River could not be dredged in certain parts because of a lack of a cost effective and environmentally sound solution for disposal of the sediment. This is a long-term, cost effective solution that will be available for use by organisations that undertake dredging in the area including GCWA, City of Gold Coast, local industry and private residential estates,” the Minister concluded.

According to the Gold Coast Waterways Authority Chair, Mara Bún, the facility will be completed and ready for use by the end of the year. “Then we can get on with the next important step of improving navigational access through our targeted dredging program,” said Ms Bún.
