Apollo-Bay-Harbour-Scope-of-Works.jpg Scope of Works

Remediation works to the Port of Apollo Bay will be carried out at a cost of $2.8 million funded by the State Government through the Sustainable Local Ports initiative.

The current works include remediation of approximately 70 metres of stone wall along the eastern side of the Port and replacement of the sheetpile wall on the ocean side of the jetty to ensure the integrity of the structure.

The project is compliant with the following relevant policies:

Marine and Coastal Policy 2020; and Victorian Marine and Coastal Strategy 2022.

Project Background

Constructed in the 1950’s, much of the Port of Apollo Bay’s key infrastructure is aged and in need of remediation. This has resulted in two projects being established and funded by the State Government to undertake a series of essential remediation works to maintain key port infrastructure.

Detailed design work was undertaken in 2021 for all remedial works required to address structural defects identified. The remedial and resilience works to the Lee Breakwater Wall and renewal and augmentation of the existing Sheetpile Wall commenced in February 2024.

Works Schedule

Contractors are currently onsite and works have commenced.

  • The remediation works to the Lee Breakwater Wall are expected to be completed in late March 2024.
  • The renewal of the Sheetpile Wall is expected to be completed in Spring 2024.

Please Note

Public access to areas of the port may be restricted due to storage sites and works throughout the project.

Access to the Port will continue for user groups and visitors throughout the works program, but we ask that everyone obeys directional signage at the site for safety reasons.
