Brighton Beach Dredging Kicks Off

The Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP) has begun with the Brighton Beach dredging and beach renourishment works.

Construction of two protective work groynes and dredging of sand for beach renourishment at Brighton Beach is expected to be completed in 12 weeks subject to weather conditions.

The project will create a 350 meter long sandy beach immediately north of the groyne at New Street, providing a storm buffer for the bluestone seawall as well as reinstating sand at the southern end of the beach.

The beach between New Street and Green Point was renourished over 30 years ago, however over time the sand has moved northward with the prevailing wind driven waves leaving the southern area depleted of sand.
