The construction of the one-kilometre stretch of mobile wave wall on the seawall, along the Rupert Craig Highway from Liliendaal to Conversation Tree, is expected to be concluded in early September, almost doubling the original time frame for the project.
Project engineer Maitland Stewart said that the inclement weather has been burdensome to the $20 million construction project. He said that the construction had been stalled due to the rains, while noting that the physical construction of the 0.7 meter-high by 2.4 meter-wide units had to be modified to allow for quicker assembly.
