Seawall progressing well

The new sea wall and jetty being constructed by Fulton Hogan at the Pakuranga Sailing Club is coming along well.

The jetty is now pretty much in place but still walled off as the rebuilding of the gabion baskets [woven wire mesh baskets that can be filled with rock] along the Rotary Walk continues.

The workmen tell me there are in excess of 12,000 tonnes of rocks being used to secure the wall – from quarries all over Auckland so not a small task.
