Ocean Beach Sea Wall Repairs to Commence

Published on Monday, 11 April 2022 at 10:20:37 AM

Repair work is set to begin soon on the sea wall at Ocean Beach which was severely damaged last winter.

Commencing Tuesday 26 April, access to the popular beach will be disrupted as heavy machinery operates in the area.

Community members are asked to respect any full or partial closures which may occur during the four-week-long project in an effort to maintain the safety of the public but also to reduce the likelihood of extended delays.

“As many in our community will have seen, it’s a sensitive site and we’d like to get the work done as safely and as quickly as possible to reinforce the site before winter arrives,” Shire of Denmark Deputy CEO David King said.

“We expect there to be the need to completely close access to the beach at times during the project so machinery can access the beach.”

“We’ll do our best to share regular updates on when there will be full closures at Ocean Beach and we’re asking the community to respect those closures so the team can get the work done safely and quickly.”

Mr King said it was not the Shire’s preference to close off access to the popular surf spot but that it was necessary for the works to be completed.

“We’ll do our best to allow access to the water wherever and whenever it is safe to do so,” he said.

“If there are no delays, we hope to have the work completed by the end of May.”
