Western Basin Dredging and Disposal Project

The Western Basin Dredging and Disposal Project was completed in September 2013. The project removed a total of 22 million cubic metres of material between 2011 and 2013 with works finishing 12 months ahead of schedule.

The project has increased port access by deepening, widening and creating new shipping channels with depths of up to 13 metres to allow vessels to enter and exit the Western Basin. The project also included the construction of a bund wall and reclamation area at Fisherman’s Landing.
