The Proposal

The proposal includes dredging approximately 17,000 cubic metres of material from the existing Berth 3 East pocket at the Port of Devonport and construction of an adjacent 7,900 m2 reclaim area for new multilevel roll-on roll-off stern ship ramps. It is likely that rock breaking will be required to remove some of the material. It is proposed that the dredged material will be reused in the reclamation area subject to geotechnical and contaminant testing.​​
