Replenishment of Adelaide’s beaches will be continuing from Monday, November 11, until Friday, November 15, with sand being moved from between the Semaphore and Largs Bay jetties to the critically eroded West Beach, reports the Department for Environment and Water SA.

As reported, sand will be moved from between the Semaphore and Largs Bay jetties for five days to continue to replenish the critically eroded West Beach.

Recently the sand movement works from between the Semaphore and Largs Bay jetties were modified to alleviate community concerns.

The sand from the beach will be skimmed from between the high and low tide mark between Semaphore and Largs Bay jetties and then transported along the beach to the Semaphore South breakwater.

The replenishment of West Beach is critical while the long-term solution of about 500,000 cubic meters of external sand is imported and a sand recycling pipeline from Semaphore to West Beach is built.

Sand movement works have been underway from the Semaphore South breakwater sand collection source at Point Malcolm since October 2018. These sand movement works will continue until the summer school holidays.

Sand movement works to replenish the Glenelg North coastline will also begin on Monday, 11 November, until the summer school holidays.
