Argyle Road outfall is located on Durban's Battery Beach, overlooked by the Blue Waters Hotel and flanked by the Sun Coast Casino and Somtseu Road outfall (Snake Park Pier). The original beach outfall was upgraded to a sea outfall in 1990. The distinctive shotgun culvert stretched 50 m from the original brick outfall to the ocean. Localised beach accretion between Bay of Plenty and Battery Beach, causing blockages at the outlet, necessitated a further extension of Argyle outfall by 60 m. The project commenced in September 2009 and was undertaken by the eThekwiniMunicipality's Coastal, Stormwater and Catchment Management Department with Esor Africa as the contractor.
