Update on Northern Look-out to Brendan Beach track

PCC has provided an update on the slip remedial works on the track to Brendan Beach

Monitoring and geo-technical work is ongoing at the slip below the Pukerua Bay lookout on SH59.

This project is being led by Wellington Transport Alliance (WTA), in partnership with the various land owners in that area, including Porirua City Council.

In February this year, technical experts from WTA installed a number of geo-technical survey pins across the slip site.  These are being regularly monitored to assess for land movement and so far there has been no significant land movement.

Remote tilt sensors have also been recently installed to provide another source of data for the slip assessment.

This information will help guide the project’s next steps regarding what further slip assessments are required and how best to manage the land in the short and long term.

In the meantime, the pathway from the lookout car park to Brendan Beach will remain closed as it is not safe for the public to use.
