The Quinns Beach Shark Barrier was officially opened this morning by WA Premier, the Hon. Colin Barnett MLA, alongside the City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts.
The Quinns Beach Shark Barrier is now fully complete and open to the public. The public feedback and support for the project has been incredible and it appears to have already had an impact on people's swimming choices.
The Quinns Beach Swimming Enclosure was co-funded by the WA State Government and the City of Wanneroo. The installation process began on the 18th January and was fully complete and demobilised by the 30th January, less than two weeks after it began. The speed and effectiveness of the installation program was due to the innovative new processes; including using a helicopter, producing the barrier in sections, and completing most of the works out of the water.
