Buffalo Beach Rock Wall Extension Kicks Off

Work on the Buffalo Beach rock wall extension in Whitianga has begun and is expected to be completed by June, according to Thames-Coromandel District Council.

This scheme will be the extension of the existing rock wall for another 120m and the project will cost $633,100.

Meanwhile if you see some diggers around Dundas Street – that’s the Marina Society doing some sand dredging work. All the sand that’s dredged from the Marina wil be transported along to Brophy’s Beach, where it will sit until it can be used for the geotextile (sandbag) wall,” the Council added.

The tender for that work has been approved and will start mid-year. This new geotextile bag wall is part of planned work to help with coastal protection at Brophy’s Beach as the existing rock wall was put in under emergency and is not consented and needs replacing.
