All Ready for Beresford Foreshore Coastal Protection Project

Western Australian Regional Development Minister Terry Redman yesterday announced the beginning of the $23.1 million Beresford Foreshore coastal protection and enhancement project.

According to Mr Redman, the project – supported by $17.28 million from the Liberal National Government’s Royalties for Regions program – will address an ongoing and expensive erosion problem and protect economic infrastructure.

Works will soon begin to address the threat to the sensitive coastal environment and critical public and private infrastructure, including a protective breakwater extension and an extension to the existing groyne,” he said.

Acting Transport Minister John Day said that the Department of Transport had been closely involved in the development of a long-term solution for Beresford.

This project is the outcome of multiple coastal engineering investigations based on extensive wave, current and sediment flow data gathered over a decade,” Mr Day said. “The detailed sand nourishment and protection structure designs have been heavily scrutinized and peer reviewed by national and international experts.”

The project will involve off-shore works to mitigate erosion including a protective 100 meter breakwater extension to the detached breakwater, an extension to the existing groyne and three retaining structures.

The project will be managed by the City of Greater Geraldton and is expected to be completed in 2018.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
