Contractors working on detailed design of Bunbury’s Waterfront

Detailed design work on the new breakwaters proposed for Casuarina Boat Harbour and Koombana Bay is underway, marking a new milestone in Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront.

Consultants Advisian have been appointed to prepare the detailed design and tender documentation for breakwaters and associated dredging, with construction anticipated to begin in 2024 following environmental approval.

To be delivered as part of Stage 3 – Phase 1 of the State Government project, the sheltered water provided by the breakwaters will support development of the marine industry and provide long-term assets for the community to enjoy.

A future marine servicing precinct at Casuarina Boat Harbour – to be partly built on reclaimed land – will provide serviced lease sites for marine commercial activities such as boat lifting, boat servicing and boat storage.

It’s estimated that new breakwaters at Casuarina Boat Harbour and Koombana Bay will require around 200,000 tonnes of armour rock and 450,000 tonnes of core rock to be transported to site.

The South West Development Commission is overseeing the overall project, working closely with the Department of Transport (Western Australia) in the delivery of Stage 3 – Phase 1.
