Mourilyan Breakwater Extension Works About to Begin

Work to extend the Mourilyan breakwater is expected to begin later this month with rock from several local quarries due to arrive soon, according to the Queensland Government’s latest release.

Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said that the $1 million, 60-meter extension works to the breakwater would enhance protection for boaties.

“This is great news for Far North locals and visitors to this beautiful region who like to get out on the water,” he said.

‘‘Improvements will provide safer conditions for launching and retrieving vessels at the boat ramp and floating walkway.”

Mr Bailey added that the original breakwater was built by the State Labor Government in 2011.

‘‘This announcement further cements our commitment as we continue to improve infrastructure and safety for recreational boaties in the Mourilyan area,’’ he said.

Completion is planned by the end of April 2018, weather permitting.

Funding for this project is being provided from the Marine Infrastructure Fund.
