Pile driving work has begun on the new terminal for the Spirit of Tasmania, currently under construction as part of the Port of Devonport’s $240 million Quaylink development.
Dredging work at the Port of Devonport’s East No. 2 Berth started in November, with reclamation work starting in May and scheduled to be completed next month.
Around 1000 tonnes of steel piles have been delivered to the site, which will take around four months to be driven into position to support the large concrete deck to follow.
Quaylink project director Sam Wilson-Haffenden says it’s a once in a generation major project.
