Vassallo wins $35m contract for Shute Harbour project
The restoration project – costing $54.5 million overall – will see a complete rebuild of the seawall, terminal, pontoons and carpark at the Shute Harbour marine facility.
Whitsunday Regional Council Deputy Mayor John Collins said 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,” he 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.”
After extensive damage during Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie in March 2017, eligible works received joint funding from the Commonwealth and State Governments under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).
