Transport Minister Pam Beggs said today she was deeply saddened to learn of the death at the weekend of Bunbury Port Authority general manager Brian Cunningham.
"Mr Cunningham was a strong supporter of moves to reform the waterfront and worked closely with his own workforce and the Waterside Workers' Federation to introduce the new arrangements that come into effect next week," Mrs Beggs said.
"He made a significant and leading contribution to the vision for the Bunbury port which led to the successful new inner harbour development.
"He will be sadly missed.
"I extend my condolences to his family."
