Major revamp for Jetty One at Barrack Square

The State Government will deliver an $18.7 million revamp of jetty infrastructure at one of Perth's most iconic waterfront precincts, supporting improvements to tourism and charter operations on the Swan River.

Barrack Square and its jetties form one of Perth's busiest waterfront tourism locations, neighbouring Elizabeth Quay and the Bell Tower.

Jetty One has been in service for more than 50 years, nearly double its original 30-year design life, with the Department of Transport undertaking remediation works in recent years due to degraded wood piling.

Replacement of the jetty will breathe new life into the Barrack Square precinct, with use of Jetty One having been limited in recent years.

The project includes replacement of a section of substructure supporting the Old Perth Port Building.

The upgrade of the jetty will be funded out of the Perth Parking Management Account, supporting the expansion of tourism businesses and operators in the area.

The project is one of several projects to activate the river around Perth, including:

- The Causeway pedestrian bridges project, currently under construction;
- The WACA redevelopment, currently under construction;
- The Aboriginal Cultural Centre, currently in its planning phase, and;
- The revamp of the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

A tender process for the design and construction of the new jetty is expected to commence later this year, with construction set to begin in 2025-26.

The planned jetty upgrade comes as the Government announces the next phase in its plans for an expanded ferry service on the Swan River.

A $2 million feasibility investigation will be funded in the upcoming State Budget, allowing the Public Transport Authority to undertake detailed analysis of an expansion to ferry services.

These investigations will include assessments of the best locations for new ferry terminals, potential designs for new ferries, terminals and berths, geotechnical and civil engineering analysis, and dredging assessments.
