Long-term coastal management works to address erosion along Quinns Beach will continue in the coming financial year, reports the City of Wanneroo, Western Australia.

As outlined in the city’s recently adopted 2019/20 budget, $2.1 million has been allocated for stage three works, which encompass the extension of groyne three, near the intersection of Camira Way and Ocean Drive, in addition to extensive beach renourishment works.

The extended groyne will assist with trapping additional sand as it moves up and down the coastline, resulting in a wider beach and an improved buffer against erosion.

City of Wanneroo Mayor, Tracey Roberts, said that the multi-million dollar project was instrumental in alleviating the impact of ongoing erosion to the Quinns Rocks coastline, with winter storms causing substantial wear and tear to the beach before the city implemented measures to save the shoreline a few years ago.

This project has already had a mitigating effect on sand movements and erosion along the Quinns Rocks coastline and we are confident that these ongoing works will help the City manage the coastal erosion issues.”

Stage three construction is scheduled to commence in October 2019 and continue into early 2020.
