North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP) General Manager Engineering and Development, Dr Rochelle Macdonald, said that the contracts for repair works on all three breakwaters at the port are now finalized.

Local Mackay business CJD Investments (NQ) Pty Ltd are the contractors for the Southern Breakwater repair works and we look forward to this important work getting underway,” Dr Macdonald said.

MGN Civil Pty Ltd will also undertake works on the Middle and Northern breakwaters scheduled to begin in February.”

The repair works across all breakwaters will require approximately 80,000 – 90,000 tonnes of rock. These rocks will be sourced locally from quarries at Mt Bassett and Blue Mountain, NQBP said in its release.

“We know how much the breakwater means to the people of Mackay. It’s where so many people come to enjoy a walk, cycle or drive and take in the magnificent views,” Dr Macdonald added.

That’s why NQBP has ensured the Southern Breakwater can remain open to pedestrians and cyclists during the repairs.”

NQBP aims to have the repairs completed by the end of 2018.
