Western Australia Department Of Transport (DoT) is about to start work on a project that will provide safe navigation at Mandurah Ocean Entrance and widen the Town Beach.

According to DoT General Manager of Coastal Infrastructure Steve Jenkins, the annual sand bypassing and replenishment project, funded by the State Government and City of Mandurah at a cost of $1.25 million, would see about 160,000 cubic meters of sand relocated.

To ensure Mandurah Entrance Channel remains safe for navigation sand is taken from Halls Head Beach and pumped to Town Beach,” Mr Jenkins said. “The work, due for completion in October, maintains the natural eastward drift of sand and replenishes the eroding beaches to the north east of the Entrance Channel.”

The works will be undertaken using a mobile material screening, pumping and conveying plant designed to transfer materials cost-effectively over long distances and long reach excavator.

DoT also added that they are working with local schools and sports clubs in the area to minimize inconvenience, asking beachgoers to observe the warnings in place and keep well clear of the works which will occur during daylight hours from Monday to Friday.
