A £1.8 million worth dredging project to replenish the storm damaged beach between Shore Road & Branksome beach has been completed.
Works on the project started on Monday, 3rd November, with delivery of pipes for the sinkerline, to be welded on the beach. Sand pumping operation started on 19th November.
The trailing hopper dredger Magni R picked up sand from the Swash Channel, Poole Harbor delivering it to the beach via pipline.
The project was completed on Tuesday, 16th December with the replenished beach now stretching from Sandbanks rock groyne to the end of the beach huts at Canford Cliffs.
The project delivered a total of 139,000 cu.m. of sand over a period of 28 days.
