North Queensland Bulk Ports General Manager Rochelle Macdonald has confirmed the Mackay Breakwater will be closed to vehicles for almost a year. She said "It's important to understand the breakwaters' primary function is to provide protection to the Port and marina. Unfortunately maintenance and repairs to all of our breakwaters will be required from time to time. The project includes the supply and placement of 80,000 to 90,000 tonnes of rock for all the breakwaters."
The work comes after damage to the breakwater from TC Debbie earlier this year.
