Carnarvon dredging campaign starting soon

Work will soon begin on the $3 million dredging campaign at Carnarvon, starting at Teggs Channel in early July – moving to the Fascine entry and spit in October, according to David Michael, local member for Balcatta.

The measure is part of the $7 million multifaceted Carnarvon Fascine Entryway and Boat Harbour Pen Project, announced in 2020, to deliver improved ocean access for boat owners in Carnarvon.

The Department of Transport Transport WA has also brought forward regular maintenance dredging and will combine that with work to stabilise the sand spit and improve ocean access.

This will ensure better use of the dredge while it is in the vicinity, saving on remobilising costs.
