Jetty expected to be reopened in time for summer fun

Sunday, 12 October 2014

With fishing a popular summer pastime for local families, the South West Development Commission is aiming to have a jetty in the Leschenault Inlet repaired in time for the upcoming school holidays.

The State Government agency has hired a contractor to fix the structure so that it can once again be used by the public.

SWDC chief executive officer Don Punch said the Commission fenced off the jetty, near the Sykes Foreshore Reserve, when it was deemed unsafe and repairs were now underway.

"The jetty is an important community asset that provides access to the water and is well-used as a fishing platform," he said.

"We are pleased to be able to provide funds towards repairing the jetty and look forward to reopening it in time for people to cast a line during the summer holidays."

Works being carried out on the SWDC-owned jetty include the replacement of decking timbers.

SWDC is part of the West Australian Government and aims to make the region an even better place to live, work and invest. Developing the region's economy and improving quality of life are key areas of focus.
