The new Umhlanga stormwater outfall pier is a continuation of a box culvert which is also under construction at present. The pier will extend approximately 85 m across the beach to a deep-water channel to ensure maximum dispersal of stormwater into the sea. It will be unlike any constructed in the region previously with long-span sections on columns to permit continuous access along the beach. The architectural styling has been a very important element of the design and is in keeping with the proposed improvements to the promenade.
