Preparations Underway for Camborne Coastal Scheme

Preparations are underway to restore and protect Porirua’s popular Camborne Walkway, which has been hit hard by coastal erosion, the Porirua City Council said in its latest release. 

Resource consent has been received for a plan of action and companies are now being sought, through a tender process, to carry out the work.

“We know how popular this walkway is and there has been a lot of concern from our residents about the impact coastal erosion is having on it. This project is about repairing areas of damage and protecting it for the future,” said Porirua City Council Parks Manager Olivia Dovey.

“We’ve been working for some time to secure the resource consents we need from Greater Wellington Regional Council, Porirua City Council, and an archaeological authority from Heritage New Zealand.”

The council is seeking bids from companies able to take on the upgrade project. The construction period is negotiable but work on the walkway must have started by 9 April and be complete by 15 June 2018.

The tender closes on 21 September.
