Townsville City Council said in its latest announcement that their crews are set to conduct sand restoration works on Horseshoe Bay during the next couple of weeks.
Division 3 Councillor, Ann-Maree Greaney, said that managing erosion in Horseshoe Bay is a priority for the council.
“Horseshoe Bay is a popular destination on Magnetic Island and regular restoration work is needed to keep it looking its best,” Cr Greaney said.
“The major factors causing the erosion are rainfall run-off and high tides.
“Council is developing a long-term plan to reduce erosion and make the Horseshoe Bay beach more resilient to weather events.”
In order for the restoration work to be undertaken, a temporary beach closure will be in place from May 14 – 18, while sand is moved from the eastern end of the bay to the affected areas, the council stated.
