Local limestone destined for Ocean Reef Marina breakwaters

Up to 800,000 tonnes of limestone sourced from DevelopmentWA's limestone quarry at Neerabup will soon be transported to the Ocean Reef Marina site to create two huge breakwaters.

With construction starting this year, the new Ocean Reef Marina is set to become an iconic waterfront precinct, providing a capacity for 550 boat pens and more than 200 boat stackers, a wide range of public amenity and eventually more than 1,000 homes, apartments and single residential and mixed-use developments.

Two breakwaters, approximately two kilometres in total length and up to 18.5 metres from the bottom of the ocean floor, will require up to 800,000 tonnes of limestone, which will be protected by a granite outer armour.
