Maritime Constructions workers celebrating the last plank being put in place.

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Recently the Maritime Constructions team celebrated as they laid the final concrete plank into place at the end of our new iconic loop jetty.

This completes the major structure of the new jetty with all 102 piles being driven and the concrete blocks laid, the length of the jetty now measuring the full 165m.

City of Whyalla Acting CEO Kristen Clark said it was a major milestone in the construction and a sign everything was still on track for our new jetty.

“The jetty project is going very well, it is on time and also on budget,” Kristen said.

“We now have the major structure complete with all 102 piles driven into the seabed and all of the concrete blocks laid in place,”

“From here the finishing touches will be applied to finalise the construction which include construction of shade structures and installation of handrails and services for our iconic new jetty.”
