H2O Blasting, give the railing on the Esplanade at St Clair
its three-monthly waterblast yesterday.
Dunedin City Council roading maintenance manager Peter
Standring said the fence, light poles and steps on the sea
wall at the Esplanade were cleaned regularly to get rid of
A report canvassing the options for protecting the sea wall
into the future is expected to go to councillors in February.
The wall was undermined in May last year.
The damage has so far cost the council more than $500,000 to
repair, including the replacement of temporary rock
protection at the base of the wall.
