Waikanae River mouth and beach

Waikanae River mouth marina prop

Two photos presumably taken by the same people, but obviously at different times, which show the development that occurred at the south end of the beach by the river mouth in the late 1960s.

The first photo has Eruini Street as the nearest east-west street that has been put in place, with Tutere Street ending a little south of it, ditto for Queens Road.

The second photo shows Tutere Street extended to about where it ends now, and the lagoons, and an excavation plus formation work for a pier, apparently for a marina development that didn’t proceed. This was reformed into part of the estuary.
