Madsen Giersing Supporting Development of Queensland’s Largest Indigenous Community

By | News | No Comments

Madsen Giersing is delighted to have been engaged by Brady Marine and Civil, to provide engineering expertise on their development of a new jetty for Queensland’s largest Indigenous Community in Yarrabah, east of Cairns. The $11.5 million Yarrabah Jetty project is funded by the Queensland Government.

Located 50km from Cairns by road, the community is only 12km away by sea and the new jetty will provide the community with access to commuter and tourism services that will boost the region’s economy and provide faster connections to the regional centre.

Madsen Giersing is providing detailed design services for the 165m-long structure, associated fenders and piles, as well as ensuring that the facility will be compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, enabling easy access for people with disability.

Lasse Madsen outlined key areas of consideration the team will take when developing the design. “This is a fantastic project to be involved in, one that will help support a community’s growth and development. A key part of our design will be ensuring access for the whole community; therefore, we will be looking at how we can efficiently and easily provide access for people with disability.”

The project is being developed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, and when completed, the jetty will become an asset of the Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council.
