The existing public access fishing jetty which extends out from the breakwater at the marina at the eastern end of the town beach is 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 is to be 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 upcoming construction.

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