Over the past two weeks we have removed most of the concrete World War II tank traps from our section of the shoreline at Stockton beach.
The tank traps were removed to improve the safety of swimmers and surfers using this section of the beach.
185 of an estimated 200 tank traps have been relocated from the water and are being stored on our site. It’s possible the remaining tank traps, which remain buried, will be uncovered in future heavy sea events.
The history of the traps on our land was well documented as part of heritage studies before we removed them. We are exploring the potential for reusing the traps in future.
