The latest stage of coastal management work at Quinns Beach is underway and includes an upgrade and extension of Groyne 3 and beach replenishment, reports the City of Wanneroo, WA. 

According to their latest announcement, the beach and car park adjacent to Fred Stubbs Park will remain open to the public for the majority of the works.

Commenting the news, Mayor Tracey Roberts said: “Stage three is expected to be completed by January 2020 with most of the work scheduled to be finished before Christmas, provided the weather is good.”

“This work is important for the environment and I urge residents and beach users to be patient and mindful when they are in the area.

“The State Government contributed $300,000 towards the project through a Coastal Adaptation and Protection Grant and our community is grateful for that support.”

Winter storm conditions have caused substantial wear and tear to the foreshore for a number of years, with sand movements causing the beach to slowly recede over time.
