The Western Australian Government is calling for tenders for a key development on Bunbury’s Waterfront project, which will improve the causeway rock structure and public access to the area.
The $10.9 million project to upgrade the Jetty Road causeway at Casuarina Boat Harbour in Bunbury in WA will be delivered in two phases, with tenders open for the first phase.
The first phase is expected to see about 24,000 tonnes of rock placed for essential improvements to the structure of the causeway from early August 2018.
The second phase of work is expected to start in early 2019 with replacement of the road, formalised parking, footpaths, landscaping and improvements to services including power, water, sewerage, firefighting and telecommunications.
“These works will support a major future expansion in boat pens off the causeway itself, currently being planned for the next stage of the Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront (TBW) project,” Western Australian Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said in a statement.
“The TBW initiative will deliver improvements to Bunbury’s foreshore providing improved amenity, facilities and services that will support and stimulate the growth of tourism and local industries.”
As part of the tender process, the department is holding an information opportunity for local subcontractors wanting to work with companies tendering for the phase one work.
