Bowen Boat Harbour Entrance Channel Breakwater Extension – DTMR

Hillery Group were engaged by Department of Transport and Main Roads to carry out construction of the Bowen Boat Harbour Breakwater Extension. This involved, extension of the eastern and western breakwaters to the entrance channel of the Bowen Boat Harbour using a combination of loaders and excavators for placement of armour and core rock; installation of lighting and a concrete pedestrian pathway to the western breakwater and design of precast footings to navigation structures on the eastern breakwater.

Hillery Group successfully completed this project on time with no incidents in February 2020. The opening of the pedestrian pathway has been popular with locals for fishing, where mangrove jack and barramundi are common in the area. The pathway also makes for a pleasant afternoon stroll.
