What’s this about?

The NSW Government is delivering major improvements to maritime infrastructure and facilities across the state to help the boating and wider community safely access, use and navigate our rivers and coastal waters.

The southern breakwall is a popular spot for locals and tourists, with colourful graffiti rocks along the breakwall and views of the Hastings River and Town Beach. 

The current southern breakwall infrastructure requires maintenance and upgrading to ensure its longevity, meet current safety and accessibility standards for this critical maritime infrastructure.

Benefits of the project 

  • Increased life of the breakwall
  • Improved Maritime accessibility and safety for vessel users of the Hastings River
  • Improved Community access and sue of the breakwall
  • Improved pedestrian safety and accesibility.

The Proposal

The refined concept design includes:

  • Rebuilding 600 metres of the breakwall along the river section
  • Completing maintenance of the breakwall head with minimal change to the footprint
  • Installing a new five-metre-wide footpath along the majority of the structure’s length. This excludes the last 30 metres at the head of the breakwall, where the current footprint and
  • width will stay the same 
  • Installing a new access ramp at the seaward end of the caravan park
  • Installing new lighting on the shared pedestrian and cycleway path along the breakwall.

A 3D animation has been created to provide an overview of the proposed concept design. You can view this, the Environmental Assessment (EA) and the latest community update on our website
