Wangara company wins $4.9 million contract to upgrade Hillarys Boat Harbour, Two Rocks Marina facilities

A WANGARA company has won a $4.9 million contract to replace 30-year-old facilities at Hillarys Boat Harbour and build boat pens at Two Rocks Marina.

The Transport Department announced it awarded the contract to Shorewater Marine today, which coastal infrastructure general manager Steve Jenkins said would improve marine facilities at both northern suburbs sites.

“At Hillarys Boat Harbour, 30-year-old floating concrete jetties are at the end of their working life and will be replaced allowing for the installation of a new modern floating pen system,” he said.

Two Rocks Marina.

“Staged demolition work will commence in July ahead of a year-long construction phase.”

The contract accounts for a large portion of works in the current $6 million Two Rocks Marina upgrade.

It will see the demolition of condemned maritime structures, including the original fuel jetty, in the coming months, followed by the construction of relocated boat pens later this year.

Where work will be carried out at Two Rocks.

Mr Jenkins said the department was working closely with users at both facilities as some vessels would need to be temporarily relocated during the staged works schedule over the next 12 months.

“Shorewater Marine is an experienced local marine construction company and has previously undertaken work to inspect and improve facilities at Hillarys,” he said.

Where work will be carried out at Hillarys.

“Sub-contractors will also be used and the contract is expected to generate six new local jobs.”
