Repair Work To Begin At Narooma North Breakwater

The NSW Government has awarded a contract to repair a 15-metre length of the Narooma North Breakwater channel which was damaged by storms in 2016.

The contract for the repair work was awarded to Coastwide Civil Pty Ltd at Albion Park following a competitive tender process undertaken by the Department of Industry - Lands and Forestry.

Member for Bega Andrew Constance said the NSW Government has funded the $130,000 project, with work expected to begin at the end of May.

“This project will see the placement of up to 500 tonnes of armour rock for the revetment and 100 tonnes of quarry run material for the crest surface of the breakwater to repair damage caused by the storms in June last year,” Mr Constance said.

Additional repairs are planned for other damaged sections of the northern and southern breakwaters in the 2017/18 financial year.

“Our coastal harbours play such an important role in the ongoing success in many of our regions, providing opportunities for economic growth, job opportunities, tourism and recreation,” Mr Constance said.

“The NSW Government is committed to maintaining the entrance to Wagonga Inlet for the public, recreational boaters, tourism operators, and fishermen that operate on the waterway.”

The work is funded under the Department of Industry – Lands and Forestry’s Coastal Infrastructure Program which supports the management and maintenance of 25 coastal harbours from Eden to Ballina.

Access to the breakwater will be restricted while the repair work is carried out, which is expected to take four weeks. Media Release
