Repair works, King Street breakwater

We are delivering a range of emergency repairs and long-term works to help manage, maintain and preserve Stockton's coastline.

These works included repairs to damage from erosion events and reinstating access for the community, including a new accessway to South Stockton Beach.

At the King Street breakwater, past coastal erosion events exposed the foundations of the concrete surface, so both pedestrian and vehicle access to South Stockton beach were closed and no vehicle access available to the Stockton North Breakwater.

Now that work is complete, access has been reinstated for the community including recreational users and fisher folk to South Stockton beach, and also to Council and the Port of Newcastle for necessary operations.

What did our work involve?

We started with the rehabilitation of a 68-metre rock revetment on the western end of the north flank of the Stockton North Breakwater. We also constructed an accessway for pedestrians and operations vehicles from the end of King Street to allow access to South Stockton Beach, and we reinstated the existing accessway to Stockton North Breakwater.
