RM Surveys celebrate the opening of new jetty, Town Beach Broome
RM Surveys (Northwest) was engaged by SMC Marine to be the surveyor for the construction of the $6 million jetty groyne promenade.
The new jetty at Town Beach Broome officially opened on Saturday 6th November. The 110m-long jetty will be used by both locals and visitors for activities including land-based fishing, a short-term small boat mooring for the loading and unloading of passengers and luggage. It will be a scenic walkway into Roebuck Bay and a viewing point for the Staircase to the Moon.
Already locally known as the ‘Crocodile’ jetty due to its very different design to manage Broome’s crazy tidal movements of 9 metres between low and high tides.
Jon Hall, Survey Manager – Northwest said
“It has been a challenging but exciting project to be involved with. I and Nathan Hull have enjoyed working in close partnership with SMC Marine to produce this iconic landmark for Broome”.
The Shire of Broome said
“Over the last three years and in with collaboration with the State Government through its Royalties for Regions Program and Lotterywest, more than $15 million has been spent to refresh Town Beach into an award-winning, family-friendly hub”.
