What we are doing

  • Downer as part of SCIRT is constructing the new seawall on Beachville Road to replace the one damaged in the 2011 earthquakes.
  • From Wednesday 20 April, the southeastern corner of Beachville Road will be closed (see Map 1).
  • This road closure will allow us to complete the final corner section of the seawall.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the road closure.
  • We expect this road closure to last 4 weeks, subject to favourable on-site, and weather conditions.
  • Residents from number 11 to 126 will have access to and from their properties via the north end of Beachville Road.
  • Residents from number 1 to 10 will have access to and from their properties via the south end of Beachville Road.

Traffic Impacts

  • Existing traffic management along Beachville Road will be changed to make space for two lanes. This will allow two-way traffic on Beachville Road, up until where the road closure will be put in place.
  • Please drive with caution and be alert to the changes in traffic management, follow signage on-site and drive to the changed conditions.
