With an eroding coastline along the Dunkirk and Riverside Reserves, an upgrade
was required to mitigate the effects of the sea. With some areas completely
unprotected, others had sections of unengineered ad-hoc seawalls which were
failing. Urban Solutions were engaged to upgrade this coastline.

Due to the size of the project, an initial condition assessment was undertaken
to prioritize the work. This resulted in the coastal edge being divided into two
separate sections, an unconsented section adjacent to Dunkirk Reserve and a
constented section adjacent to Riverside Reserve. The 800m of failing protection
adjacent to Dunkirk Reserve was identified as the most critical section for
renewal and construction began on this section first.

Urban Solutions were engaged to provide an asset condition survey, business
plan, concept design, public and iwi engagement, consenting, design and
construction management services.
