Broadbeach - Kurrawa Park seawall

Seawall construction

Commencing: June 2019
Completion: September 2019
Total project cost: $1.1 million

Project information

Works are underway to complete a new section of seawall between Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club and Queensland Avenue. The 175-metre section of seawall will improve resilience to coastal erosion during storms.

Construction details

  • sand will be excavated and large boulders will be used to construct the seawall, which will then be reburied with sand
  • the beach work zone will be cordoned off for safety
  • use of heavy machinery and trucks on the beach
  • dunes will be replanted on completion of the works.

Benefits to the community

  • improved resilience to coastal erosion
  • improved protection for buildings and property along the beachfront.

Works will be completed Monday to Friday, 7am to 3.30pm. We are working to minimise disruptions. However, temporary traffic control measures will be in place to provide safe access for trucks and machinery.

Two beach access points will be closed temporarily but alternative access is available north of Queensland Avenue and at Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club.

These seawall works are part of our ongoing investment to maintain our beaches and supports our Ocean Beaches Strategy 2013 to 2023.
