The City of Whyalla, South Australia, has announced that the construction works on the third stage of the breakwater rock armor installation project are in full swing now.

As reported, local company Whyalla Earthworks is continuing with the third stage of the breakwater project that will strengthen the inner-face of the breakwater. This work will shore up this important section of the marina to ensure its continued safety.

The southern breakwater will be re-opened on weekends to give access to the swimming enclosure but the sea-facing breakwater will remain closed, the council said.

They also added that there will be no restrictions to the boat ramp or any other part of the marina carpark but motorists, boaties and pedestrians are asked to be mindful of trucks and heavy machinery moving about in the area.

The first stage of the project involved carting in 180 five-tonne rocks and strategically placing them along the sea-facing breakwater in June this year.

The second stage of works saw another 200 rocks placed along the breakwater.
