WA Government Invests $332 Million into Geraldton Port

Through the 2022-23 State Budget, the Western Australian Government is investing $332 million towards Mid West Ports Authority’s Port Maximisation Project that will enable the Geraldton Port to meet increasing demands for services.

The Port Maximisation Project will include works such as:

  • Demolition and reconstruction of the berth ½ with associated ship loading and material handling infrastructure, to facilitate the sand, urea and spodumene products, that are incompatible with iron ore and requires dedicated facilities
  • Rationalisation of port infrastructure to reduce operational maintenance costs
  • Road works (to facilitate the significant increase in truck movements)
  • Other associated infrastructure, such as additional vessels, operations precinct, maintenance facilities and shore tension units

This multi-million-dollar project is anticipated to create over 2,700 jobs during its construction and hundreds of indirect jobs as well as opportunities for local subcontractors.
