Spoilbank Marina design expanded to include four-lane boat ramp

Aug 7, 2019


The State Government has announced that the Port Hedland Spoilbank Marina design will include a four lane boat ramp, doubling the original size of the boat launching facility, following strong community feedback.

Feedback from boat users and the Port Hedland community has seen the original two-lane ramp replaced with a four-lane option which will greatly improve the safety of launching and retrieval operations, particularly in peak periods.

Input from the project Community Reference Group in July along with insights from international marina design expert Jack Cox, who has been engaged to work on the entrance design, have significantly advanced concepts for the marina.

The Department of Transport's call for registrations of interest in boat pens at the marina has also been well received with 20 registrations formally lodged.

Additional to the pens and boat ramp the marina will include two breakwaters and internal revetment walls and an access channel separating marina traffic from shipping activity.

There will also be public open recreational space and improved public access, parking, toilet facilities and areas for pop-up stalls.
