Ellis St Jetty

Ellis St Jetty upgrade completed ahead of schedule

The popular Ellis Street Jetty has been reopened ahead of schedule following an extensive upgrade to ensure continued long-term use by the local community and others.

The popular Ellis Street Jetty has been reopened ahead of schedule following an extensive upgrade to ensure continued long-term use by the local community and others.

Department of Transport (DoT) Director of Coastal Facilities Donna West said the major refurbishment, which only commenced in October, was due for completion in early 2020 but now people will have use of the jetty before Christmas and during the holiday season.

“Working in cooperation with the Shire of Augusta Margaret River and the local community, DoT contractors, Broadspectrum, this week delivered the $400,000 project well ahead of schedule,” Ms West said. 

In September an inspection revealed the head of the structure was in poor condition and DoT announced plans to close the jetty and immediately start work on its refurbishment in October.

Work undertaken to repair the jetty included:

  • Removal and replacement of the structure’s timber decking, with new timber used for 75%
  • Removal of all structural timber, and replacement with 90 per cent new structural timber
  • Strengthening and corrosion protection of the jetty’s steel super structure.

The Ellis Street Jetty was constructed in January 1984 and originally used prior to the construction of the Augusta Boat Harbour as a Service Jetty for fuelling vessels and loading and unloading passengers and product.

E-scooter rules and regulations in WA

With the sale of electric scooters (e-scooters) widely advertised in WA, the Department of Transport wishes to inform potential riders of the devices of the current rules and regulations.

With the sale of electric scooters (e-scooters) widely advertised in WA, the Department of Transport wishes to inform potential riders of the devices of the current rules and regulations.

Many e-scooters currently for sale in WA are illegal to use on public roads and paths in WA and can only be used on private property.

Compliant e-scooters can only be legally ridden on low speed WA public roads and paths if their maximum power output is no more than 200 watts and they cannot travel more than 10 km/h on level ground. Many e-scooters on the market are non-compliant and have motors that exceed 200 watts and can travel at speeds much faster than 10 km/h.

Riders of e-scooters that are compliant with relevant power output and speed regulations also must follow the following rules under Road Traffic Code 2000:

  • Riders are permitted on footpaths and shared paths, so long as the rider keeps left and gives way to pedestrians also using the paths;
  • Riders must wear a helmet;
  • Riders cannot ride on roads with a speed limit exceeding 50km/h;
  • Riders cannot ride on roads with a dividing line or median strip;
  • Riders cannot ride on one-way roads with more than one marked lane; and
  • Riders cannot ride during the hours of darkness.

Devices such as e-scooters have grown in popularity in response to community demand for more innovative and sustainable travel choices, which have the potential to lessen car dependence and more efficiently connect people to cities and communities.

With this is mind the Department of Transport is working with a range of stakeholders, including e-scooter companies, local governments and the Road Safety Commission as well as the National Transport Commission and other States and Territories, to develop a regulatory framework which could allow for the safe and convenient use of e-scooters on our transport network.

Christmas is traditionally a time when new bikes, skateboards and scooters are gifted and the Department of Transport would like to take this opportunity to remind parents and riders that it is important to wear a helmet, take care and ride safely.
