Mandorah Marine Facilities (Jetty)

The Mandorah Jetty is an ageing asset and a new facility is required to improve safety, provide access for disabled people and to unlock development and tourism in the area. The cost to construct the new facility has been estimated at $50 million and will result in approximately 80 direct jobs.

The new facility has been identified as a long-term project under the 10 Year Infrastructure Plan 2018-2027. The project has been brought forward to support the Territory’s construction industry and create local jobs. Expected completion of construction is mid-2022.

Features of the new marine facility

  • Breakwater structure / rock groyne
  • Gangway and floating pontoon to improve access for mobility impaired users and users with prams
  • Piles/pylon to support the floating pontoon
  • Boat ramp
  • Onshore supporting infrastructure featuring car park and trailer parking

Design and construction timelines

  • Detail design tender: February – March 2019
  • Award detail design: April 2019
  • Release construction tender: May 2020
  • Expected completion: May 2022

Maintenance of the existing facility

The existing Mandorah Jetty and boat ramp will require ongoing works, to maintain current services. Further maintenance works are planned for 2019. This work is to ensure public safety and maintain the existing level of service until new facility is built.

Vehicle limits remain in place with a speed limit of 10 km/hr and load limit of 4.2 tonnes. Access to some sections of Mandorah Jetty will be restricted during works. A public notice will be issued to advise of any impacts to the use of the facility as a result of these works.
