The Bowen Wharf (Australia) is expected to see increased activity on and around the wharf over coming weeks.

Maritime engineering experts will be continuing a detailed assessment of the structure on behalf of North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP), weather permitting.

The works will involve an inspection of the wharf’s timber sections. The wharf will remain open and safe for public access for the duration of the works.

Nicolas Fertin, CEO of NQBP, said the latest works followed an initial round of testing on the wharf in early 2019. He commented: “Given the Wharf’s 150 plus years’ existence, this follow-up testing will help us complete the picture of the condition of the wharf, so we can plan its future."
