Two Rocks Marina upgrade

Planning and design has commenced for the $6 million upgrade of facilities at Two Rocks Marina with priority repairs to the breakwater now completed.

Stakeholder and community engagement has begun to look at the long-term vision for the facility with the Two Rocks Marina Reference Group holding its inaugural meeting on 4 April 2018.

  Project status

Two Rocks Marina will receive a $6 million revamp over the next two years to improve ageing infrastructure and prepare the facility for future needs. 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 - the Western Breakwater Repairs - have now been complete (May 2018). Approximately 7,000 tonnes of limestone was placed during the works which were designed to increase the breakwater's resilience to future storm events and improve public safety. The works also improve access for recreational fishing. Images of the works can be found in the image gallery below.

Works associated with the demolition and replacement of marine structure has also recently commenced with mobilisation of equipment late June 2018. A contractor area has been established between the boat ramp and the yacht club and during demolition and construction some materials will be ferried using a barge operating from the southern boat ramp.

Whilst there maybe be some impacts to the boat ramp users from time to time during load out of materials these will be kept to a minimum. The boat launching facility will remain open.

In addition to the immediate upgrade works, stakeholder and community engagement has begun through an information session and a Reference Group that will look at the long-term vision for the facility, with a view to creating local jobs. The Reference Group held its first meeting on 4 April 2018.
