SA budget 2017-18: Sea wall will be fixed

The storm-damaged sea wall at Wyomi Beach, near Kingston, will be finally repaired as a result of a funding allocation in the 2017-18 state budget.

Treasurer Tom Koustsantonis allocated $600,000 to the Coast Protection Board for the project, which will be undertaken by the Kingston District Council.

The wall was damaged in a storm which swept across South Australia last September, causing flooding, landslides and high winds as well as widespread blackouts.

The government will spend a total of $12.8 million fixing storm damage across the state, including in national parks in the Riverland and another sea wall at Adelaide's West Beach, over two financial years.
