Dates confirmed for Port of Currie slipway works

Works to repair damage to sections of the slipway at the Port of Currie to begin next week.


08 June 2023

Tasmanian-based contractor BridgePro Engineering, engaged by TasPorts to undertake repairs to damaged sections of the slipway at the Port of Currie, will begin mobilising equipment to site on Monday 12 June.

TasPorts Chief Operating Officer Stephen Casey said works were expected to commence the following day and should be completed by 27 June, weather permitting.

“The contractors have advised us that they will need to close sections of the port while undertaking the works,” he said.

“The safety of port users, TasPorts personnel and contractors and the wider community is a critically important consideration for the organisation.

“TasPorts will therefore need to consider access for port users on a case-by-case basis while the works are undertaken.”

TasPorts closed the slipway at the port late last year because of the poor condition of submerged sections of the slipway given its age and exposure to the marine environment over many years.

Mr Casey thanked Port of Currie slipway users for ongoing their cooperation during the closure.
