Spoilbank Marina dredging contract for Hall
Hall Contracting has been awarded a $21.4 million dredging contract for the Spoilbank Marina in Port Hedland.
The dredging will create a new navigational channel, linking the marina basin to deep water.
Up to 190,000 cubic metres of material will be removed from the channel to create the required depth.
The McGowan Government is investing in community facilities in the Pilbara, with the Spoilbank Marina aiming to improve safety for recreational boaters and create a vibrant amenity for the community to enjoy.
“With the contract now awarded, local businesses in the Pilbara are set to benefit from this investment, with $6.6 million committed locally, in addition to a pipeline of upcoming subcontracting opportunities already identified for the project,” said Rita Saffioti BBus MLA, Government of Western Australia.
Mobilisation of equipment and commissioning works will begin in the coming month, with dredging works expected to start mid-year.
