Seafield Terrace Revetment Project shows ‘co-operative spirit’

The Seafield Terrace Revetment Project was officially completed on Friday 26 March, with a karakia dawn blessing.

This project involved the construction of a six-metre wide rock revetment structure to protect the road against future storm events. Work also included reforming the road, adding footpaths, a new carpark layout and laying a new sewer.

Seafield Terrace at Glenduan suffered considerable damage in the November 2017 and February 2018 storms.

The final solution was arrived at in collaboration with the affected residents and considering several very technical options.

Infrastructure Chair Councillor Brian McGurk was pleased to see the result of what could happen when Council and the local community works together.

“I applaud the co-operative spirit shown by everyone involved in this project, including iwi, Council, Council consultants, DOC and council contractors,” Councillor McGurk says. 

“This work has restored this area of the coastline and improved safety, parking and beach access at the same time.”

Take a look at the before and after photos, to see what a difference the work has made.
