Seawall construction - Pacific Parade, Tugun

Seawall construction works

Commencing: August 2020
Completion: December 2020 (weather permitting)
Cost: $2.05 million

Works are underway to complete a new section of seawall on Pacific Parade in Tugun, between Wagawn Street and Kropp Park. The 200-metre section of seawall will improve resilience to coastal erosion during storms.

  • 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.
  • Heavy machinery and trucks will be used on the beach.
  • Dunes will be replanted on completion of the works.
  • The seawall construction will require the removal of two platforms. The first platform (the largest) will be removed and relocated to a more suitable location (i.e. adjacent to Kropp Park).
  • The second is a smaller viewing platform and stairs adjacent to Wagawn Street that will also be removed and replaced with a sand ramp access way.
  • Works will also include an upgrade of the existing footpath along Pacific Parade to the Oceanway standard design. The upgrade will begin at Kropp Park and tie in to the existing path to the south of the site.

Community benefits

  • Improved resilience to coastal erosion.
  • Improved protection for buildings and properties 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 residents, pedestrians, trucks and machinery.

Beach access points will be closed temporarily but alternative accesses are available north of Kropp Park and south of Wagawn Street along Pacific Parade.

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