Sand carting continues to prevent erosion of Adelaide’s metropolitan beaches
The South Australian Government is continuing to deliver its $48.4 million plan to secure the future of Adelaide’s metropolitan beaches with sand carting continuing through winter and into spring to combat erosion at West Beach and Henley Beach South.
With sand being trucked from Semaphore, Local Member for Colton Matt Cowdrey commented "these beaches are so important to, not only the local communities in that area, but South Australia more broadly as thousands of locals and tourists flock to our beaches during the summer months.”
South Australian Minister for Environment and Water David Speirs added “the State Government is investing to secure the future of some of Adelaide’s most beautiful metropolitan beaches.
"This consists of $20 million for additional sand and $28.4 million for the completion of a sand recycling pipeline from Semaphore to West Beach, as well as sand dune restoration and revegetation in partnership with local councils and coastal community groups.
“Sand carting will address the problem in the short term until the recently announced 500,000 cubic metres of new sand is sourced, and the Semaphore to West Beach sand recycling pipeline is built over the next four years to replenish the area for the long term.
“Adding sand to the foreshore at West Beach is important because it increases dune volume and the resilience of the area with benefits to other beaches, as sand naturally drifts northward."
The public have been advised to take care when in the area and stay off the dunes and freshly placed sand. Safety signage is in place.
