Nightcliff Stormwater and Coastal Erosion Works

Home / Projects / Nightcliff Stormwater and Coastal Erosion Works
Project type 
Coastal erosion

The works to redirect the stormwater outlet pipes to the bottom of the cliffs and install armour rock along the Nightcliff foreshore (near the Nightcliff Pool) started in late March and are expected to be finished late June 2017 (weather permitting). The works are being staggered over 12 weeks.

The location of the works:

During the works there will be:

  • Some noise disturbance due to rock movement and machinery
  • Some dust associated
  • Closure of some parks in the carpark north of the pool
  • Traffic management along the shared paths with some short detours necessary.

Please note that asbestos containing material has been identified as a potential hazard in the area and will be safely managed throughout the works.

Here are photos of one of the sites for the next stage of works. As shown in these photos the shared path is close to the eroded cliff edge. (If you look closely you can also see the old posts where the previous fence was before it had to be moved due to erosion.) These photos also shows one of the stormwater outfalls that will be moved as part of these works.
