We are building a replacement seawall at Tropicana Drive, Tamaterau (between May Grove Lane and Tropicana Drive on the shoreline) that fits with existing topography. 

The current seawall between May Grove Lane and Tropicana Drive, Waikaraka is decaying. Unfortunately, the current seawall is not well constructed and this puts the shoreline at risk of further degradation and erosion.

To solve this issue, a replacement seawall has been designed and will be constructed in 2023. This will provide better protection to the shoreline and help eliminate the erosion.

We hope to finalise the contractor in May 2023 and complete the construction by the end of August 2023.

Hawthorn Geddes has provided the design. The design length is 180 metres and the estimated budget is $200,000.
