Manu Bay Seawall Works About to Begin

Maintenance work will begin at the end of January on the Manu Bay seawall in Raglan to avoid any further erosion occurring.

Waikato District Council Service Delivery Manager, Tim Harty said that the seawall had been constructed in the 1960s and routine maintenance was necessary to make sure the impact from sea swells did not cause the land to further erode, undermining the structure.

Since it was constructed the seawall has been subjected to the full force of nature and has held up extremely well. The work we are doing will ensure that the reserve is protected from erosion and that visitors using the area are kept safe,” he said.

Work will involve rocks and boulders being used to provide additional support to the existing sea wall structure. These will be stockpiled on the grass area near the boat ramp before and during the maintenance works.

The Manu Bay boat ramp will continue to be available to the public during the maintenance work which is expected to cause minimum disruption to those using Manu Bay for recreation.

The maintenance project is expected to take place from late January to the end of March 2016.
