Western Australia Premier, Mark McGowan, today officially opened the first of two stages of the transformational Bunbury Waterfront project, the Jetty Road Causeway.
The two-year project involved major repairs to the causeway with an additional 31,000 tonnes of rock placed to strengthen the structure.
According to the government, the design work will soon commence for new breakwaters at Casuarina Boat Harbour and Koombana Bay. This follows the State Government’s $78.1 million commitment to the third stage of the Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront initiative.
The new breakwater will unlock Casuarina Boat Harbour’s full potential. It will increase the land area and establish improved shelter for boats providing significant future capacity and commercial opportunity.
At Koombana Bay the new breakwater, linked to a marina development proposal, will provide greater public access.
Construction of the breakwaters will begin in late 2022 following the completion of the detailed design work.
