Work to stabilise the quay wall next

to the footpath running along the side of Town Quay in Christchurch begins on

Monday 28 March.

Christchurch Council’s coastal

engineering team last year undertook a survey of the wall, which is a popular

walk for residents and visitors alike, and found a section which was deemed to

be unsafe.

A two-tier layer of limestone

blockarmour will be placed against the front of the most unstable section of

the wall, around 40 metres in length, which will provide stability for at least

five years.

A more detailed design analysis for

a longer term solution will then be undertaken, subject to funding being

available in the future.

The work, which is being undertaken

by the Council’s coastal engineering team assisted by Neptune Plant, is likely

to take around two weeks.
