The December photo shows how far work has progressed with about 15 machines working on it. The marine works, including 2 public slipways, should be complete in June this year. The harbour will not open to the public this year as considerable work must be done on the land side.
The walls are solid blocks protected by rocks and then antifers placed on top. These concrete castings appear white in the photo and their function is to break up the waves before they hit the wall. During the heavy storms in December it was noticeable that the waves were much calmer where these antifers had been completed than where the wall was less protected.
