An annual coastal maintenance work to ensure safe navigation at Mandurah Ocean Entrance and to widen Town Beach is officially underway, the Government of Western Australia’s Department of Transport (DoT) announced today. 

DoT General Manager of Coastal Infrastructure, Steve Jenkins, said that the annual sand bypassing and replenishment project, funded by the State Government and City of Mandurah at a cost of $1.2 million, would see about 170,000 cubic meters of sand relocated.

“To ensure Mandurah Entrance Channel remains safe for navigation sand is taken from a trap at Halls Head Beach and pumped to Town Beach to ensure a wide beach for community use,” 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.

“When complete the local community will enjoy a wider Town Beach in time for the summer season.”

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