Bayside Council is getting ready to undertake extensive work on the collapsed Sandringham seawall that will minimise the deterioration of the existing wall and improve the existing footpath.
“Council is continually investing in mitigation and remedial measures to help ensure the beachfront is available for all to enjoy now and into the future.
“Erosion and protection of the foreshore is a shared responsibility between local and state government, so I am very pleased Council successfully obtained a NSW Government grant to help fund these works.”
Bayside Council received a $1million NSW Severe Weather & Flood Grant which will go towards repairing the seawall.
Council will install a rock buffer along the seawall foreshore between Sandringham Beach and Vanston Baths to minimise deterioration of the seawall and impacts from tidal sand movement.
A similar rock buffer is already in place south of Vanston Baths.
Council will also widen the existing footpath and install path lighting.
Council is currently working through initial designs and is expected to go to tender in early 2023 once the plans and approvals are in place.
