THEVENARD Jetty near Ceduna in South Australia is in line for a $15m upgrade, with Flinders Ports’ plans to overhaul a section of the jetty to ensure it can continue to be used for commercial and recreational use.

The project will see significant maintenance and renewal works performed to the existing 235-metre structure following the successful approval of the project’s development application.

In addition to the restoration, improvements will be undertaken including a slight widening of the jetty deck and installation of craneage points to facilitate future maintenance activity. Works will include jetty beam and slab demolition, new piles and structural steel supports, pre-cast concrete deck installation, and fit out of railings and kerbs.

Flinders Ports CEO Stewart Lammin said the project was essential for the ongoing viability of the jetty.

“We recognise the importance of this jetty for the Eyre Peninsula in supporting jobs and industry in the region, and we have a responsibility to manage its long-term viability,” Mr Lammin said.

“Initial preparatory works will start this week, with the project due for completion in late 2020. The jetty will be closed to the public for the duration of the project.

“It will remain in full commercial use throughout the restoration and Flinders Ports will work closely with stakeholders to minimise any disruptions to commercial operations.”
