Seawall upgrade at Davy Robinson Reserve

The seawall at Davy Robinson Reserve is getting an upgrade next month, meaning boat ramp and pontoon facilities will be closed between 26 April and 30 June, 2017.

As part of the NSW Better Boating Program, Liverpool City Council and NSW Maritime will replace the seawall with a new one made from rock, backfill the soil and upgrade the drainage.

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said the existing seawall was more than 30 years old.

“It’s in a dilapidated state, due to natural erosion,” Mayor Waller said.

“We’re going to replace it with a more durable and longer lasting seawall, using modern engineering techniques.

“The result will be a much better area for boat users and residents. It will also minimise future erosion.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure, and appreciate our community’s patience during this period.

“The nearest boat ramps are at Rabaul Road, Georges Hall, and Picnic Point Boat Ramp, Picnic Point.”

The estimated cost for the design, seawall, earthworks and associated drainage works is $400,000.

This is a jointly funded project with Liverpool City Council and Roads and Maritime under the ‘NSW Boating Now’ infrastructure delivery program.

This work is following the boat ramp renewal completed in 2014. After the seawall is finished, the car park renewal works will follow.
