Bids Invited for South Entrance Beach Project

The NSW Government is calling for tenders for the construction of a rock groyne to control erosion at South Entrance beach.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC, said that the NSW Government has allocated $2 million to the project to increase the length of time that sand stays on the beach at The Entrance.

“The 100 meter long rock groyne will be constructed south of the Surf Life Saving Club tower and have a direct benefit for the entrance channel to Tuggerah Lakes and recreational beachgoers,” Mr MacDonald said.

“Work will involve the placement of around 6,000 tonnes of 2 to 4 tonne size rocks which will be transported by dump trucks to the site.”

The project will be managed by the Department of Industry (DoI) – Lands & Forestry and will also involve nourishment of the beach with sand dredged from the entrance channel and the completion of a report into making the channel deeper.

The call for tenders today follows extensive community consultation and a thorough review of environmental factors including local vegetation, fauna, traffic management, site safety, noise pollution, water quality and waste management.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
