Construction Tender Awarded To Restore Shute Harbour

By Ray White Whitsunday

The $35 million construction tender for the rebuild of Shute Harbour terminal and seawall was awarded to
Vassallo Constructions Pty Ltd at Council’s Ordinary Meeting today, with works expected to begin from
early January 2020.The overall $54.5 million restoration project will see a complete rebuild of the seawall, terminal, pontoons
and carpark at the Shute Harbour marine facility.Whitsunday Regional Council Deputy Mayor John Collins said the damaged terminal and jetties were
demolished last year in preparation for reconstruction.
“Council adopted the detailed design for the new facility in December 2018, and we are excited to begin
works on the ground very soon,” he said.
“This is a complex project and it is important we get it right. Over the past year we have been diligent in
fine-tuning the engineering solutions and seeking clarifications throughout the tender process.”
“Shute Harbour is such an important place for so many in our community, and the new marine facility has a
huge potential to drive economic growth in our region.
“I’d like to extend Council’s sincere thanks to the Australian and Queensland Governments for supporting
this restoration project and our local Whitsunday residents,” Cr Collins said.
After extensive damage during Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie in March 2017, eligible works received joint
funding from the Commonwealth and State Governments under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery
Arrangements (NDRRA).
