Works to rebuild the seawall at the southern end of Narrowneck will continue from July 2017.

We will be constructing up to 200 metres of seawall to the north of Higman Street, Surfers Paradise. This will complement the existing $4.2 million seawall that was recently completed.

The City of Gold Coast's coastal management program is a vital part of the Ocean Beaches Strategy that ensures the city's coastline is protected from storm damage and erosion.

  • The works include excavating the existing seawall and placing new armour rocks (up to four tonnes each) as required to rebuild the seawall.
  • The works will include restoration of the foreshore, including revegetation of the dunes and the reinstatement of furniture, pavements, and footpaths.

Commencing: July 2017
Completion: October 2017
Cost: $900,000

This project forms part of our Ocean Beaches Strategy 2013 – 2023 which aims to boost our defences against storm damage.

Temporary construction impacts

  • Temporary fencing and traffic control arrangements for site access at Higman Street will be in place during the construction period.
  • Pedestrians accessing the Oceanway will be diverted around the works and pedestrian access to the beach will be maintained through alternative access points.
  • Heavy machinery and construction materials will be located on the beach during the works.
  • We will be working to keep all disruptions to a minimum. Thank you for your patience.
