Torquay Sea Wall

The Great Ocean Road Coast Committee plans to invest $450,000 to upgrade the Torquay Front Beach Sea Wall over the next two years. Planned works involve replacing the beach access stairs near Anderson Street, establishing an all abilities footpath between Cosy Corner and Anderson Street stairs, and installing a coastal protection structure to prevent erosion and improve access.

The works are to be completed in accordance with the recommendations of the Torquay Central Foreshore Master Plan 2005, following extensive consultation including on site displays and direct mail out to residents along the Esplanade, and again in 2016.

We are currently seeking further community feedback on this project.  Please read this fact sheet and let us know what you think.
