Exmouth pens

Exmouth pen improvements continue

Work has started on the next phase of jetty and pen improvements at Exmouth Boat Harbour.

Work has started on the next phase of jetty and pen improvements at Exmouth Boat Harbour.

Department of Transport (DoT) Coastal Infrastructure General Manager Steve Jenkins said the $1.4 million project would see the addition of 14 new boat pens to Jetty B.

"As work continues on the $18.275 million Exmouth Boat Harbour Upgrade to significantly increase capacity, these are separate additional improvements to the pen systems located on the northern side of the facility, Mr Jenkins said.

"The implementation of phase two of the Exmouth jetty and pen improvement project will see seven new finger jetties added to Jetty B providing 14 brand new pens over the next month. To facilitate the Jetty B works, removal of the cyclone damaged Jetty A is required.

"The removal of Jetty A, which was beyond repair, clears the way for its future replacement which will add a further 26 new pens and significantly improve safety for users."

Jetty B was constructed as part of the initial phase of the pen improvement project in 2012 at a cost of $3.6 million.

The 14 new pens on Jetty B, range from 12 to 15 metre berths and have been designed with the finger jetty extending the entire length of the pen to assist loading, unloading and general access. The same high quality low maintenance materials used for the construction of Jetty B will be used for the additional finger jetties.

Taxi drivers convicted for pocketing unentitled subsidies

Two Bunbury multi-purpose taxi drivers convicted on misusing the Taxi User Subsidy Scheme (TUSS) have been ordered by Bunbury's Magistrate Court to pay more than $8,500 in fines and court costs.

Two Bunbury multi-purpose taxi drivers convicted on misusing the Taxi User Subsidy Scheme (TUSS) have been ordered by Bunbury's Magistrate Court to pay more than $8,500 in fines and court costs.

Both taxi drivers breached the Taxi Regulations 1995 by receiving reimbursements from TUSS subsidised fare payments to which they were not entitled to receive. Department of Transport (DoT) General Manager of On-demand Transport, Iain Cameron said the department takes these unlawful actions very seriously.

"The misuse of TUSS undermines the department's effort in ensuring an accessible and reliable on-demand transport service for passengers with a severe disability,” said Mr Cameron.

"For these customers, taxis may be the only reasonable travel option available to them and this misuse of a vital service is unacceptable."

Eligible TUSS passengers with a severe disability pay a reduced taxi fare for their trips using a voucher system that is verified by the taxi driver. The driver submits this voucher to DoT to claim reimbursement for the 'gap' amount in the fare.

DoT prosecutors told the court that an internal audit on the convicted taxi drivers revealed discrepancies in their records such as reimbursements for trips with a TUSS passenger that did not occur.

From May to December 2015, the drivers claimed a total of more than $2,300 in unentitled reimbursements, which they have now been ordered to repay.
