Why do we need to take the Seawall Debate seriously?
BOOF!!! The seawall takes a direct hit in the last big sea.
And another wave crashes into the recently built timber wall
Until the wall was constructed the sand dunes and root systems were under severe threat.

Comment on the wall.
6 meter poles with 4.2 meter palings deeply embedded into the sand and tied back to a horizontal dead man placed 6 meters behind the wall.
It is a great wall, but being timber it’s life span is limited to around 30 years – for the Parade in Paekakariki we MUST consider the longer term.
