Omokoroa to Get New Rock Walls

Three new rock walls are being built along the Omokoroa foreshore to prevent further erosion and protect the community’s much-loved seaside walkway.

More than 4000 tonnes of rock is currently stockpiled at the Omokoroa Reserve, as contractors begin efforts to transport it, which is not an easy task, said Council Procurement and Projects Manager, Peter Clark.

About 200m of wall will be constructed in total, which will join up with three walls already in place, built in 2006, 2010, and 2013.

The popular walkway along the coastline has already been damaged by erosion, and some of the piping is at risk. These rock walls will help prevent further erosion, and help protect the sandbanks,” Clark said.

Work is expected to be complete by 1 October, 2015.
