The Cable Beach Foreshore Redevelopment has reached an important milestone, as the Shire of Broome Council has endorsed CMA Contracting Pty Ltd as the preferred tenderer for the upcoming construction phase of the project.

CMA Contracting was appointed as the preferred contractor at a Special Meeting of Council on Thursday December 21, 2023. It is expected that works will commence on-site in March 2024, with the projected completion expected by late 2024.

The construction of the Cable Beach Foreshore Redevelopment Stage 1, is being delivered with a combination of grant funding, Shire reserves, and borrowings.

Grant funding includes $3.85 million from Preparing Australian Communities, approximately $3.1 million from the Building Better Regions fund, approximately $2.1 million from Local Roads and Community Infrastructure, and $1 million from LotteryWest.

Cable Beach stands as a world-class tourism attraction, however the surrounding infrastructure is aging. Therefore, this phase of the project will significantly enhance the precinct's amenities.

The scope includes the construction of a youth hub behind the Broome Surf Life Saving Club featuring basketball court, skatepark, shade structure, and parkland.  

Other elements include native landscaping, seating, and additional signage at the entrance to Minyirr Park, upgraded beach access stairs, a new vehicle ramp at the Broome Surf Lifesaving Club, and additional lighting, landscaping and civil upgrades through the southern carpark.

The Cable Beach Community and Stakeholder Reference Group, which was established at the beginning of the project design phase in 2021, will continue to act as a conduit to the community.

The Shire of Broome is presently pursuing grant funding to complete the remaining planned works within the precinct.

Shire of Broome president Chris Mitchell said that after the successful revitalisation of the Town Beach and Chinatown precincts, enhancing the Cable Beach foreshore was the next natural progression.

“The redevelopment of the Cable Beach foreshore has been a long-standing objective of the Shire of Broome Council, and I am thrilled we have reached a stage where we will soon see the design come to life.

“We aim to keep the community informed throughout the projects progress, and provide numerous avenues for residents and stakeholders to gain insights along the way.

“The Shire thanks the public, particularly members of the Community and Stakeholder Reference Group, for their engagement in the project up to this point.”
