$7m jetty contract for Elizabeth Quay

The state government has awarded its third early works package for the Elizabeth Quay project, with specialist contractor Maritime Constructions being awarded a $7 million deal to reconfigure existing jetties at Barrack Square and make way for construction of the inlet.

Planning Minister John Day said the revitalisation of Barrack Square was a priority of the Elizabeth Quay project.

“In addition to the jetty works, the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority will transform the area with a range of new short-term additions, including pop-up kiosks, public toilets, a cyclists’ station and children’s play space,” Mr Day said in a statement.

The state government also said it was seeking expressions of interest from food and beverage operators to take up kiosks at the completed development.

“The kiosks will be fabricated from old shipping containers and accompanied by an alfresco deck, lighting, landscaping and shade to create a central activity hub in the area,” Mr Day said.

“New casual dining and takeaway options will complement the current restaurants and cafes, and cater for increased tourists and visitors and those who regularly use the foreshore for business, exercise or their commute to work.”
