A draft Masterplan to revitalize Port Hedland through construction of the McGowan Government’s $94 million Spoilbank Marina and waterfront redevelopment has been released for public comment, the Government of Western Australia reports. 

The Spoilbank Marina project represents an important step toward the activation of the Port Hedland waterfront for the local community and those from further afield, said the government.

Reflecting significant stakeholder and community input at workshops held during September 2019, the Masterplan incorporates both land and ocean-side development.

As part of the overall marina works, it is expected that an approximate total volume of 800,000m³ of material will be generated from the following sources:

  • cut to fill operations on site;
  • excavated material from the marina waterbody;
  • dredge spoil from the marina waterbody and channel;
  • excavated material from the sand trap to the north of the marina.

The suitability of the sandy marine sediments and calcarenite rock for reuse as general fill or structural fill is subject to further geotechnical investigation and testing, with a factual report expected in December 2019 and an interpretive report expected in February 2020.

A dredging management plan will be established prior to construction which will detail the dredging methodologies to be used, as well as the locations and sizes of the onshore sedimentation ponds which will be built on the subject land.
