Waverley Cemetery Landslip and Coastal Walk Remediation Works

Following the wild storm of June 2016, which caused severe erosion to Waverley Cemetery's gully and undermined the structural integrity of the coastal walk, necessary remediation works will be undertaken at Waverley Cemetery's landslip and coastal walk.

When will the works commence and how long will they last?

Works will commence on 18 September and last approximately 9 - 12 months.

What do the works include?

The work will address safety issues, reopen the coastal walk and secure the landslip from further slippage. It will:

  • stabilise the existing embankment and provide long term engineered reinforcement to protect the embankment
  • withstand the forecasted sea level change for the next 100 years
  • optimise storm water cleansing and passive irrigation
  • create a habitat for local providence species
  • create reflective spaces for passive recreation

What are the impacts?

While this work occurs, no public vehicles can enter the cemetery. The cemetery can be accessed by foot only. A number of traffic and safety measures will be in place to minimise any disturbances to residents and visitors. The footprint of the site will continue to be fenced off. We expect there will be construction noise during this work, however we will make every effort to minimise the inconvenience to you by ensuring that no machines or loud works occur prior to 7am.
