Neumann Wraps Up Tallebudgera Dredging

The dredging of Tallebudgera Creek has been completed for 2015. Approximately 25,000m3 of sand was pumped to Burleigh Beach this year.

Neumann Contractors have undertaken the dredging works in Tallebudgera Creek for many years now, and the works are an integral part of the Gold Coast City Council’s program to maintain and replenish the sand on Gold Coast beaches.

Each year around 25-40,000 m³ of clean sand and dredged from the Tallebudgera Creek to replenish the sand on Burleigh Beach. The sand is pumped overland and released in the southern end of Burleigh Beach, near the Burleigh Beach Pavilion and spread up to 350m northwards.

Nu EnterpriseThe Nu Enterprise, a 250mm Cutter Suction Dredge, a land based booster pump and up to 1.8km of pipeline were used to complete the works.

Each year sand naturally travels northward along the coastline. Sand travelling across the entrance to Tallebudgera Creek can become trapped and cause infilling of the mouth of the creek. The trapped sand also contributes to the erosion on Burleigh Beach, which is just north of Tallebudgera Creek.

The Gold Coast City Council are committed to keeping Tallebudgera Creek in the best possible condition and in doing so can also help one of the Gold Coast greatest assets, Burleigh Beach. Without the annual beach nourishment program the extreme erosion problem could render the beach a hazard.

The Cutter Suction Dredge Nu Enterprise will now be sea-towed the short distance (approx. 6km) to Currumbin Creek, where it will complete similar dredging works in the mouth of Currumbin Creek and beach nourishment works on Palm Beach.
