Works have commenced on the Western Australian Government’s $4.5 million Marine Terrace Roundabout, a project designed to improve traffic flow in and out of Geraldton Port.

With the grain harvest reaching record highs in recent seasons, the new roundabout will ensure grain is efficiently moved in and out of the port.

The new roundabout is among several projects aimed at supporting Western Australia’s grain export industry and the region’s economic growth, with the State Government also funding the $350 million Geraldton Port Maximisation Project (PMaxP).

PMaxP is a major infrastructure project which will significantly boost the capacity of Geraldton Port and facilitate the export of new commodities from the Mid-West region.

Contractor BG&E Resources is well progressed in design work for PMaxP, including product handling systems and civil works, in addition to concept validations, and vessel and marine simulations.

A critical project for the Mid-West region, PMaxP could boost Geraldton’s export capability by almost 70 per cent, delivering billions to the region and the State’s economy.

Western Australia Premier, Mark McGowan, said the State Government is focused on delivering infrastructure that grows both state and local economies, and helps new industries thrive.

“The $350 million expansion project will massively expand the capacity of Geraldton Port and help drive new commodity exports across the Mid-West.

“Our investment will also help to futureproof the industries that our regions have relied on for decades – supporting our grain farmers as they continue to deliver for the state.”
