North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP) has just announced that the maintenance works are set to begin on the Bowen Wharf this week.

According to NQBP acting CEO Rochelle Macdonald, the works include repairs to cracked concrete slab sections and some of the timber decking structure and the removal of deteriorated timber fender piles.

NQBP recognizes the Bowen Wharf is a beloved public asset to the Bowen community as well as an operational asset to the Port of Abbot Point,Dr Macdonald said. “Throughout these works there will be no disruptions to public access along the wharf. Most works will be happening from a barge positioned alongside the wharf.”

Local contractors Pilchers have been engaged to complete the onshore works while Townsville-based Pacific Marine Group will be completing the offshore works.

The safety of all users is of the upmost importance to NQBP. While the fender piles are being removed, small sections of the wharf will be temporarily closed for public safety,” Dr Macdonald added.

There will be a total of 51 redundant fender piles removed over a two-week period, which will be transferred to a site adjacent to the Port Denison Sailing Club for storage.
