Part of Scarness rock wall rebuilt after January damage

A SECTION of rock wall in front of Enzo's at Scarness beach has been rebuilt after it was damaged by the big seas whipped up by ex-tropical cyclone Oswald in January.

Fraser Coast Regional Council said the waves undermined parts of the wall and a concrete beach access ramp so the ramp was removed and the wall replaced and backfilled with sand.

"The repairs dovetail in with projects being undertaken as part of the Foreshore Enhancement Program," infrastructure portfolio Councillor Trevor McDonald said.

"About 180 tonne of rock was used to repair the wall.

"New pathways have also been built through the park to link beach access with the foreshore walkway/cycleway."

The work is expected to be finished by Friday ready for people to enjoy the park on the weekend.
