Breakwater work urged

SHARE

Urgent repairs of the breakwater which protects Oamaru Harbour are likely to take place this financial year, after the Waitaki District Council’s assets committee recommended that the council fund the project earlier than planned.

At the committee’s meeting yesterday, its members voted in favour of the work being carried out during the 2015-16 financial year, as opposed to in 2016-17.

About $300,00 is expected to be budgeted for the project, which has an estimated cost of between $200,00 and $250,00.
