The City of Busselton claimed three accolades for two of its public works projects at a major awards ceremony on March 15.

The Busselton Foreshore Redevelopment project received the GK Watters local government engineering excellence award and was named winner in the best public works category – greater than $5 million (regional) at the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia’s WA division awards night.

The Busselton-Margaret River Airport won an award for excellence in the design and construction of landside and airside facilities in its category, and was recognised as an infrastructure project that benefited the broader community.

Mayor Grant Henley said the City had worked hard to progress these “first-class community assets” and the awards validated a decade’s worth of work.

“While there’s hardly a week that goes by when I don’t receive congratulatory emails or phone calls from locals and visitors, it’s also encouraging to receive this top industry accolade,” he said.

“I applaud City officers for their dedication and thank the community and local business for their support.”

Both projects are now in the running for national awards.
