The first 10 hectares of the reclamation is complete, and great progress has been made on this second stage, creating an additional 6 hectares.

LPC Infrastructure Manager Mike Simmers says to date, over 795,000 tonnes of fill from our Gollans Bay quarry has been transported to the reclamation.

“Over 348,000 m³ of dredged material from the reclamation site has been removed, reducing the land settlement time significantly.”

This second stage of the reclamation project, totalling 6 hectares, is expected to be completed by January 2021. The land will then need to settle for two years before construction can begin.
