Wombarra wall to be replaced

WORKS on replacing and renewing the ageing sea wall at Wombarra beach are currently underway.

Council is replacing the 70-year-old wall as part of its commitment to renew ageing infrastructure throughout the city.

The Wombarra Beach Sea Wall was constructed in the 1930s to protect the beach foreshore at Wombarra Point during high tide and storm events. It was constructed of stone and grout. The seawall is now showing signs of failure in a number of locations due to storm damage and is in need of replacement for safety and environmental reasons.

Council expects the works to be completed before the busy summer swim season.
