Works on the Richardson Street Jetty in Port Hedland have reached completion ahead of schedule with the unveiling by Town Mayor Peter Carter last week.

The new fit-for-purpose structure was upgraded to bolster safety and aimed to better serve recreational and commercial users.

It complements other safety measures on Hedland shores including the construction of a new sea groyne at Finucane Island Boat Ramp.

Following the completion of both projects the Town will issue a community survey to gather feedback on local boating facilities.

Town of Port Hedland Mayor Peter Carter said the developments were necessary to improve safety and usability into the future.
