The old public access fishing jetty which extended out from the breakwater at the marina at the eastern end of the town beach was in very poor condition and is unsafe for public use.

A decision has been made by the City Council of Whyalla to replace the jetty with a new structure, to act as the centrepiece for the revitalisation of Whyalla.

The construction of the jetty was a partnership between the City Council of Whyalla, the South Australian Government, and the new owners of the Whyalla Steelworks, GFG Alliance.

Magryn is delighted to be appointed design engineers for the project and to be involved in the construction.

The jetty is a steel substructure, with precast concrete decking over. The concrete is reinforced with glass fibre reinforced plastic (GFRP) reinforcement to ensure the structure is safe from “concrete cancer” in the future.”
