Horseshoe Bay Works Underway

Townsville City Council announced last week that they are completing remedial erosion works at Horseshoe Bay following the unprecedented monsoon.

Works include pushing sand up the beach to stabilize the beach and reduce any steep slopes to make the area safer for residents and visitors to Horseshoe Bay, the Council said.

Townsville Local Recovery and Resilience Group (TLLRG) Chair Cr Les Walker said that the works had been delayed to ensure they are completed near the end of the wet season.

Council began erosion works in Horseshoe Bay yesterday in the lead up to the school holidays,” Cr Walker said. “Council staff have been monitoring coastal areas around the city and are looking for ways to build our environment back better following the unprecedented monsoon.”

According to Community Health and Environment Chair and Local Councillor Ann-Maree Greaney, erosion repair works are crucial for Magnetic Island residents and visitors.

Horseshoe Bay is highly susceptible to erosion, particularly during the wet season, and Council has planned these works to ensure the area is ready for school holidays,” Cr Greaney said.

Annual Horseshoe Bay sand transfer works are scheduled to be completed in June and Council is reviewing long-term coastal management plan options for the area.

Cr Greaney added that an important part of reviewing the coastal management plan is engaging with Magnetic Island residents to understand how the community uses Horseshoe Bay.
