Rocking up . . .

Waitaki District Council contractors place rock armouring on the seaward side of Oamaru's 1872 Heritage New Zealand Category 1 breakwater, as 1500 tonnes of rock about 90m north of the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony fence completes maintenance on the structure for this financial year.

The $60,000 project, which began this week, is expected to take three weeks to complete and will use up the rest of the council's $400,000 budget for breakwater this year.

The work was identified late last year, when significant concrete deterioration was detected.
