The foundations were last month laid for a multi-purpose building on the Jetty Road causeway as part of a bigger $12.3 million upgrade.

The building is part of phase two of the causeway upgrade — delivered by the Department of Transport – and will feature toilets, showers, a laundry and a community space.

During phase one earlier in the year, a big amount of rock was placed to improve storm protection, as well as construction of retaining walls, road pavement and new stormwater drainage. “A huge amount of essential structural work has been done on the causeway, but this is work that is difficult to see,” Bunbury MLA Don Punch said.

Now that the multi-purpose building is under way, the community will be able to see just what a great project this is and how it will transform the western end of Koombana Bay for the better.

The upgrade is part of the State Government’s Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront project.
