Project Documents

The ‘Trialling coastal protection measures in eastern Tongatapu’ project focuses on designing, building and monitoring the success of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ engineering measures working in combination along two coastal stretches. One measure consists of the construction of permeable groynes coupled with beach replenishment and coastal planting. The second measure involves constructing short offshore breakwaters combined with beach replenishment and coastal planting.
