SEAWALL FRANCES BAY NT

FRANCES BAY

In 1999 Gwelo Investments commenced a large project to landfill foreshore Darwin harbour land, install all civil works and then subdivide the land into 15 Lots providing for over 200 quality units and townhouses with Harbour views and close CBD city living. As part of this Project a uniquely engineered seawall had to be constructed to protect the Estate from possible cyclonic storm surges whilst coping with daily pressures of massive 7 metre tide changes. This construction (pictured) achieved the above but also now serves as an important recreational platform for the estate.
