Repairing Pakuranga Seawall

Work is underway to repair and strengthen a seawall along a section of the walkway alongside Fisher Parade in Pakuranga, according to the Auckland Council.

The $630,000 project is just one of a series being carried out to protect local beaches from coastal erosion, a high priority for the Howick Local Board.

Part of the ageing seawall has collapsed and repair works include rock armoring, or laying several lines of rocks between the Tamāki River and a section of the Pakuranga Rotary Walkway.

“While work is being carried out, there will be no public access to the walkway between 91 and 95 Fisher Parade. Outside this time it will remain open,” said the Council in its announcement.

“For their own safety, people are asked to please observe the signs.”

In addition to ongoing monitoring, in the past two years completed works have included upgrades of seawalls at Howick and Mellons Bay beaches, sand relocation at Eastern beach and sand top ups at Cockle Bay.
