Venus Bay Jetty closed for restoration

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

27 May 2016

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the Venus Bay Jetty will be temporarily closed to the public for essential restoration works.

Works will begin on Monday 30 May and are expected to be completed by August 2016, weather permitting.

The works will consist of structural strengthening, removal of tripping hazards, and installation of upgraded lighting.

The restoration works are essential to maintain the efficient and reliable movement of produce between local business and markets. The works will help to sustain jobs in the commercial fishing industry in the far west coast.

The jetty will be closed to the public for the duration of the work, however jetty access to commercial fishermen can be arranged with prior notice.

The $540,000 restoration works contract has been awarded to South Australian company, Davey Hydraulics Pty Ltd and is funded by the State Government’s Fishing Industry Facilities Upgrades Program.

DPTI would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while these important works are undertaken.
