Coffs Harbor Breakwall Scheme Starts Next Week

Works on the $6.73 million upgrade of Coffs Harbor’s northern breakwall are set to begin during the next week, according to The Coffs Coast Advocate.

The project, being undertaken by Haslin Constructions Pty Ltd, involves widening the breakwater near the entry to the harbor and constructing a rock berm, or shelf, overlain by 12 tonne concrete armor hanbars along the 300 meter section protecting the marina.

The crest of the walkway will be raised to allow extensive views to the north, and preserving amenity and access to Mutton Bird Island.

“This important project is the result of about three years of engineering investigation and collaboration between Department of Primary Industries – Lands and key stakeholders. It was subject to extensive environmental assessment and survey of marine flora and fauna,” said Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser.

Access to the breakwater will be closed for 12-months from June 14, with alternate access to Muttonbird Island available along the marina boardwalk.

The works are expected to be completed by mid-2017, but progress is dependent on favorable weather.
