Bay of Plenty Regional Council will be starting major maintenance on the Kaituna Mole in April 2021. The maintenance is required so the structure can continue to be fit-for-purpose and safe for public use.

The structure hasn’t undergone any major maintenance since it was first built in 1958. The proposed maintenance will involve installing 50 metres of new sheet pile facing around the existing sheet piles. The sheet piles will be capped by a new concrete deck, which will also lead into the carpark area. The works will involve new handrails and some concrete benches/tables to improve public use of the structure. The works are aimed to be completed before the peak summer period.

Project timeline

  • September: Railings, mole furniture, access steps etc.
