West Beach project available for public review

The South Australian Government has just announced that the development application for the construction of a sand recycling pipeline between Semaphore and West Beach is now available for public viewing.

Part of the “Securing the future of our coastline” project, the pipeline will move sand from northern beaches where it builds up to beaches that are eroding and will be based on the successful pipeline between Glenelg and Kingston Park.

The development application includes the proposed pipeline design which will connect to the existing sand pumping system at West Beach (just south of the River Torrens) and extend northwards to the Semaphore South breakwater.

Once completed and operational, the pipeline will significantly reduce the reliance on trucks to move sand, making it safer for the community, as well as reducing noise, congestion and the impacts of trucks on roads.

The application is now available to view on the Plan SA Portal with submissions closing on 6 December 2021.
