Save this for later

Work is set to begin in January on a project to revamp a major Australian Defence Force site at Point Wilson, the Australian Department of Defence announced on 2 November.

A $193 million contract has been awarded to CPB Contractors for the work, which will see remediation of waterside infrastructure at defence’s explosive ordnance site.

The wharf and jetty has been closed since 2008 and the works will allow re-commencement of bulk importation of explosive ordinance shipments to the Point Wilson Explosive Area. This will include rebuilding a 2.4km jetty and reconstruction of the wharf.

CPB Contractors will act as the managing contractor and deliver the works through the engagement of sub-contractors.

Construction is scheduled to commence in January 2020 with completion of the project anticipated by late 2022.
