Macquarie Pier revitalisation

Devcon had the honour of delivering the much-anticipated Macquarie Pier Revitalisation Project, enhancing the renowned harbourside walkway that holds significant historical and cultural value. Take a glance at the Drone footage of this walkway, which is not only a renowned local landmark but also a beloved destination for tourists.

Accessible throughout the year, Macquarie Pier offers a public walkway and cycling path that stretches 900 meters along the waterfront, from Nobbys Beach to the Newcastle breakwater.

Macquarie Pier pathway revitalisation included:

• An upgraded pathway to provide smooth and safe for all ability access
• The wide access, high strength path enabled a staging area to be incorporated suitable for events and food trucks
• Sandstone seating logs were installed along the pathway to provide continuous seating options to enjoy the spectacular view. These blocks also assist in minimising the large amount of sand that would land on the path from the strong sea winds.
• Maritime-style safety fencing was installed with 316 grade mirror finish stainless steel rails to provide the highest durability against the marine elements.

Rain, wind, sandstorms, and sea spray were just some of the weather conditions endured during the delivery.

Hunter Business Chamber CEO Bob Hawes, lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes, Port Authority chair Robert Dunn, Hunter operations manager Emma Fensom and Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen attended the re-opening ceremony on Monday 21 Dec 2020.
