Auckland Council is renewing the Sandspit Reserve and building a boardwalk to create a cherished natural environment for the local community. The $1.6M upgrade will provide areas to walk and sit, stairs to the beach and a pier overlooking the sea. This will change the face of Sandspit beach and make it a great place to visit. Expected completion: Autumn 2019

The Sandspit Reserve seawall upgrade and beach replenishment is scheduled to commence on the 20th August 2018. The contractor engaged to undertake the works on behalf of Auckland Council is Land Sea and Civil Limited.

The works comprise: upgrade of the existing boat ramp, beach replenishment with imported sand, construction of a hardwood timber boardwalk with stairs accessing the beach, a timber pier and a concrete stepped seawall near the yacht club.

The works are expected to be complete by January 2019 or earlier if practical. The construction site will be fenced off to protect the public from harm during the construction period. The playground and barbeques will be closed and fenced off during construction works.

The construction works will be undertaken between 7.30am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 8.00am – 1.00pm on Saturdays. No works will be carried out on Sundays or public holidays. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and all efforts will be made to minimise disruption during working hours. During the construction period, the contractors will be using digging equipment and trucks at the site.
