In February 2020, a section of the coastal bank in Kau Bay eroded, following a continuous coastal high-swell period.
This meant that the exposed bank had significant erosion within 0.5-1.2m metres of the road carriageway increasing its risk of instability.
A new resilient 17m x 1.9m high sea wall will be built to support the roading infrastructure and to make the area more resilient to further coastal erosion.
What to expect
There will be a one-lane closure throughout the works period.
Construction start date: Tuesday 14 July
Finish date: 31 August 2020
