SHORE OF PEACE CLIFF STABILIZATION WORKS



The Ministry of Works and Infrastructure (MOWI) in collaboration with  Coastal Protection Unit wishes to advise the general public of the  stabilization works currently being undertaken at the Shore of Peace Cremation site. Mobilisation on the project site began on April 10th, 2015 and is expected to continue  for 210days. This is necessary in order to facilitate the construction of coastal protection structures at the Shore of Peace Cremation Facility.


PROJECT SCOPE

The project involves construction of a reinforced concrete seawall and rock armour revetment, along a 530 linear metres length of coastline in order to protect the existing cliff toe from wave attacks and undercutting of the base leading to slope failure. In addition, 500 linear metres of safety railings will be installed, set back from the cliff edge through the Cremation Facility.


CEC APPROVALS

A Certificate of Environmental Clearance (CEC)was approved  by the Environmental Management (EMA) on Friday February 3rd, 2015. The CEC Number for this project is CEC4083/2014.


In light of the above, the  public is advised to pay attention to the following:-

• The current access for users of the cremation facility will be maintained during the project

• Access for the project will be through a separate entrance to the west of the current access to the  cremation facility

• During works along the eastern extent of the scheme, access to the foreshore from the existing concrete steps will be restricted

• Public access along the beach/foreshore within the project extent will be restricted over the course of the construction

• Works will be carried out with due consideration for the ongoing operation of the cremation facility

All materials would be transported by road, the majority of which will be rock in various sizes.



The public is  invited to express any concerns regarding the project. Please contact Ms Chrysty Jagnana-623-6797

The ministry would like to thank the public for any inconvenience caused and thanks the public for its continued cooperation.
