Phase 2 of the Palm Beach Shoreline Project Underway

The City of Gold Coast has just announced that the Phase 2 of the Palm Beach Shoreline Project in now underway.

According to the release, the City is constructing an artificial reef offshore from Nineteenth Avenue to enhance coastal protection at the Palm Beach.

Phase 1 was completed in September 2017 and saw the successful nourishment of Palm Beach with more than 470,000 cubic meters of clean sand.

The Palm Beach Artificial Reef will be located approximately 270 meters offshore from Nineteenth Avenue between the beach and the existing natural reef, and will be approximately 160 meters long and 80 meters wide.

The reef will be constructed using rock quarried in South East Queensland. The rocks, each weighing up to eight tonnes, will be loaded onto barges at the Port of Brisbane before being transported to the site offshore from Palm Beach.

Specialist marine equipment will then accurately place the rock to build the artificial reef.

Construction of the $18.2 million artificial reef is scheduled between May and October 2019, when the ocean conditions are generally calmer.
