This marina sure was a long time in the making. Let’s hope the “If you build it, they will come” theory takes effect.
A new AUS$42m waterfront development in Western Australia has opened. The project, conceived 30 years ago to connect Albany’s central business district with its waterfront, includes a 74-slip marina. Transport Minister Troy Buswell said that the number of berths could be increased by 56 as demand by boaters increase.
“These state-of-the-art facilities and pens provide a protected, safe anchorage for the boating community and a base for Albany’s important tourist boat operators,” said Buswell.
The project also includes fueling facilities and a public launch ramp. Regional Development and Lands Minister Brendon Grylls told NineMSN.com that the state government worked with local stakeholders to complete the project. “This collaboration has produced a world-class result with the waterfront development now having the capacity to cater for commercial, retail and tourist investment,” Grylls said.
