Mooloolaba Sandbag Wall – Stage 2 (Design & DA)

Projex Partners was engaged by Sunshine Coast Council to design, document and certify a buried sandbag retaining wall at Mooloolaba Spit (Parkyn Parade) to protect the beach and park infrastructure against erosion from major weather events.

Mooloolaba Spit is an important part of the Sunshine Coast’s beachside environment for tourists and locals, however ongoing erosion during severe weather events has caused significant scarping and damage to vegetation and park infrastructure that is impacting the amenity of the beachfront and threatening existing infrastructure.

The sandbag wall will work in conjunction with the Mooloolaba sand pumping program to improve the amenity of the beach and limit the impacts of future weather events.
