Vegetation will be replanted after Toogoom seawall is built

THE site handover for work on the Toogoom seawall will take place this week.

Lanson Civil has been awarded the $1.1 million contract to undertake the project.

A Fraser Coast Regional Council spokesman said vegetation would be removed to build the 370m-long wall.

It would be replanted when the project was completed in five months.
