Redcliffs Celebrates Completion of New Beachville Road Seawall

Redcliffs residents now have greater security against flooding with the completion of the new Beachville Road seawall.

The 500 meter-long seawall reconstruction by the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) was celebrated at the weekend with a community gathering attended by scores of locals.

New Heathcote ward councillor, Sara Templeton, declared the project finished with the cutting of a ribbon on Beachville Road yesterday.

“The completion of this project is fantastic for the local community. It not only provides the protection of the seawall, but the continuation of the Coastal Pathway which is an important connection between the coastal communities and enables a wide range of recreation activities,” Cr Templeton said.

The year-long, $8 million project carried out by SCIRT’s Downer delivery team included not only the technically challenging rebuild of the seawall, but also the construction of a new section of the Coastal Pathway with a panoramic view of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary.
