DELWP has started on major repairs to the sandbag seawall at Portsea Front Beach. 

This first stage involves bringing in and constructing a temporary rock bund seaward of the existing Portsea sandbag seawall, then filling this area with sand to create a working platform.

In order to minimise any inconvenience during the peak Christmas and January periods, works will take place Monday to Saturday each week and are expected to take three to four months.
