Mordialloc Creek is a popular bayside destination for locals and visitors. It provides views over Port Phillip and plays host to a range of activities, including walking, yachting, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and swimming. The entrance to Mordialloc Creek where it connects with Port Phillip, is abutted with wave baffle structures to retain the banks of the creek. The baffles and associated boardwalks extend for approximately 100 metres on both sides of the entrance.
Originally constructed in the 1990s, replacement wave baffles were added in 2017 in front of the old steel sheet pile walls. Parks Victoria also undertook some repairs including pouring concrete behind the wall to close holes, however, recent inspections have revealed rapid deterioration of the infrastructure.
In 2018, consultants Cardno were engaged by Parks Victoria to evaluate the condition of the sheet pile walls and to recommend suitable options to replace the deteriorated sheet-pile walls. A further study examining wave modelling for the creek entrance to improve wave climate was carried out by Cardno in early 2021. This modelling report recommended the construction of a new sheet-pile wall (or concrete wall) for the eastern and western sides of the river entrance.
MBB were engaged in 2021 as the Project Superintendent. In general, MBBs role is to administer the contract to ensure performance under contractual obligations. Our role includes reviewing and approving project programs, directing the contractor on behalf of the Parks Victoria, issuing correspondence, giving work directions and instructing the contractor to vary the works and program as appropriate.
