    • Local company awarded contract to replace the jetty at the North Fremantle Water Police facility
    • Contemporary and safe jetty structure and wharf for Water Police
    • Boost for local jobs and WA economy 

    Local contractor Advanteering Civil Engineers has been awarded a $2 million contract to build a new wharf at the WA Water Police base in North Fremantle.


    The new structure will offer a contemporary design, with the capacity to berth larger vessels to suit the WA Police Force's fleet.


    This infrastructure will strengthen the WA Police Force's capability to respond to critical marine incidents including search and rescue operations. 


    The work has been funded as part of the McGowan Government's WA Recovery Plan which includes $96.5 million to upgrade police facilities across the State.


    Construction is expected to be completed in mid-2021 and importantly, will create nine local jobs.


    Comments attributed to Police Minister Michelle Roberts:


    "This project will deliver a safer, contemporary facility for our Water Police.


    "These works will directly support the local economy and provide a much improved and safer facility for our hardworking Water Police.


    "Our specialist Water Police Officers do a fantastic job day in and day out responding to critical incidents on the water.


    "The McGowan Government is committed to providing our police with the facilities and equipment they need to keep our community safe."
