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

The old seawall between May Grove Lane and Tropicana Drive, Waikaraka was decaying. Unfortunately, the current seawall was not well constructed and that put the shoreline at risk of further degradation and erosion.

To solve this issue, a replacement seawall was designed and constructed. This will provide better protection to the shoreline and help eliminate the erosion.

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