This chapter details the attempts to physically develop the port of Fremantle to keep up with the ever-evolving needs of the shipping industry. An Outer Harbour, following the half-decade old, solid plans of C. Y. O’Connor’s, was established in the 1950s. The harbour was also considerably deepened. An attempt at providing a dry dock, however, was unsuccessful. Tull concludes that these developments extended the capacity of the dock, possibly to levels unnecessary for their trade, at an expense that would later cause considerable financial problems in the 1980s.
