Grading work Ōhwiro Bay started

Work has begun in Ōwhiro Bay to complete the trial of beach grading by removing material posing significant risk to the area during storms and big swells. Sections of the beach will be closed while machinery is operational in the area for health and safety reasons: 

  • 9-22 December: Eastern end (closest to Island Bay) will be fenced off
  • 23 Dec – 9 Jan: No works, entire beach open to public
  • 10 Jan – end of March: Western end (closest to Red Rocks | Pariwhero) will be fenced off
