Two Rocks Marina upgrade
The Two Rocks Marina $6 million upgrade to improve ageing infrastructure and prepare the facility for future needs is well underway. Improvements are designed to address ageing infrastructure, improve safety and provide a foundation for future redevelopment opportunities.
The Department of Transport, which took on the management of the facility in 2014 following the expiry of a lease with a private operator, will use the funding to improve access and infrastructure over the next two years.
This latest upgrade follows on from the June 2016 completion of a ramp upgrade and new boat pontoon, which was delivered as a result of consultation with the local community and City of Wanneroo.
The first major works are now complete (May 2019). All abandoned vessels in the facility have been removed and construction works associated with new floating Q Jetty and refurbished West-Link-Jetty are complete. Planning is now underway for upgrades to the fire services supply, building replacement and pen replacement works, which are all aligned with the long term Master Plan currently advertised for community feedback.

- Construction of relocated boat pens;
- Upgrading and maintenance of existing jetties;
- Priority repairs to the existing breakwater; and
