Shute Harbour Terminal and Seawall Rebuild
CCF QLD member Vassallo Constructions has won the $35 million construction tender for the rebuild of Shute Harbour terminal and seawall. Work is expected to commence from January 2020.
With a budget of $54.5 million, there will be a complete rebuild of the seawall, terminal, pontoons and carpark at the Shute Harbour marine facility.
The damaged terminal and jetties were demolished last year in preparation for reconstruction.
“Council adopted the detailed design for the new facility in December 2018, and we are excited to begin works on the ground very soon,” Whitsunday Regional Council Deputy Mayor John Collins said.
“This is a complex project and it is important we get it right. Over the past year we have been diligent in fine-tuning the engineering solutions and seeking clarifications throughout the tender process.”
Eligible works received joint funding from the Commonwealth and State Governments under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) after Tropical Cyclone Debbie in March 2017.
