Whitianga Coastal Scheme Progresses Well

Construction of the rock seawall extension at Buffalo Beach in Whitianga will be completed by the end of June, according to Thames-Coromandel District.

The rock seawall is being constructed to protect the road, residential properties and the reserve on Buffalo Beach Road from coastal erosion.

We needed the strength of a rock wall here as the beach conditions can be quite severe,” said Mercury Bay Area Manager Sam Marshall.

The wall will be 115m long and will cost $375,000.

Meanwhile at Brophy’s Beach, the Council is also installing a geosynthetic container (sandbag) backstop wall which will be 530m long and cost $862,000.

Once the sand bag wall is finished, it will be covered with sand dredged from Whitianga Marina to create a sand dune effect with planting.
