Works Underway to Protect Craigie Beach Seawall

Works to construct a 97 meter rock revetment at Mount Martha’s Craigie Beach are currently underway.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), in partnership with Mornington Peninsula Shire Council (MPSC), are undertaking the works as part of the Victorian Government’s Coastal Environment Program, which funds protection and repair of assets along Victoria’s coastline.

DELWP Coastal Project Officer, Jacky Priestley, said: “The works will help protect the Craigie Beach seawall from wave impacts.”

“The stone seawall is thought to be at least fifty years old, and is nearing the end of its design life. The seawall was designed to protect the cliff faces from large, powerful waves; which over time can erode the cliffs and compromise the road, walking trails, and assets above.

“During the past decade, a rock revetment was placed in front of the seawall to absorb wave energy.

“This approach has proven to be highly effective, so we are extending the rock revetment, to prolong the life of the seawall and provide continued protection of the cliffs,” Ms Priestley said.

Until the work is completed, the area behind the seawall and sections of the walking paths in the area will be closed, 7am-5pm, Monday-Friday.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
