Stage 2 of seawall repairs at Gippsland port underway

Gippsland Ports is continuing works to shore up the Narrows seawall on the eastern side of Bullock Island with funding from the Victorian Government’s $15 million Protecting Victoria’s Iconic Beaches and Coasts Program.

Stage 1 of the works was completed in June, with 30m of the wall replaced.

Stage 2 will involve the installation of 80m of pre-formed concrete panelling, and when completed, the old unstable masonry rock seawall will be replaced with a precast concrete panel structure.

The foreshore adjacent to the seawall is a popular destination for recreational fishing, and the rehabilitation of this wall means the amenity of this area is better and safer for the community and can be enjoyed again.
