All Ready for Tallebudgera Creek Annual Dredging Campaign

The cutter suction dredge ‘Nu Enterprise’ is about to begin annual dredging program for Tallebudgera Creek.

This year an estimated 20,000m³ of clean sand will be dredged from Tallebudgera Creek and pumped up to 1.8km for beach nourishment.

Neumann Contractors has 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 20-40,000m³ of clean sand is being 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.

The 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.

The dredging at Tallebudgera Creek and beach nourishment on Palm Beach will be finished prior to the September School Holidays.
