Neumann Contractors have been contracted by the Sunshine Coast City Council to conduct additional beach nourishment works between Maroochydore SLSC and Alexandra Headland SLSC.
The works are an option from the contract for the previous 70,000m³ of material that was dredged in 2015. This involved the mobilization of the 450mm cutter suction dredge ‘Nu Endeavour’ through the Maroochy River mouth.
Due to the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships being held at Maroochydore in late March/April 2016, there is the requirement to dredge an additional 20,000m³ of sand from the Maroochy River which will be used for beach nourishment on the beach areas.
The project will take several weeks to complete.
