Bring white sand to north­side beaches

Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - NEWS -

IMAGINE beau­ti­ful pure white sand be­tween your toes right here at Sandgate, Shorn­clifffe and Brighton.

This let­ter is to ev­ery­one who would ben­e­fit from such a move and to ev­ery­one in a po­si­tion to make it hap­pen.

Beaches at the Shorn­cliffe en­clo­sure near Moora Park and the pier, at Sandgate be­side the pool com­plex, be­tween Ninth and Tenth Av­enues and at Nine­teenth Av­enue, Brighton are great ar­eas for chil­dren, sun­bathers and pic­nics that could be made to look and feel so much more at­trac­tive with a touch of white sand.

Here’s the sting. Now that the lay­ing of sand on the new Bris­bane Air­port Run­way is com­pleted Bris­bane Air­port Cor­po­ra­tion has a huge ex­cess of beau­ti­ful white sand which needs to be dis­posed of.

How about the pow­ers that be of both Bris­bane Air­port Cor­po­ra­tion and our lo­cal coun­cil or par­lia­ment get talk­ing and put some of this sand, which has been dredged from More­ton Bay, back onto the fore­shore.

What a great gift to the com­mu­nity it would be from the Bris­bane Air­port Cor­po­ra­tion.

Come on let’s have a go and see if we can get this lit­tle project off the ground.

It would be great if the Air­port Cor­po­ra­tion, the Mayor, lo­cal state mem­ber and coun­cil­lor and any­one else pas­sion­ate about mak­ing the area more beau­ti­ful could make this a goer.

So folks please con­tact your lo­cal mem­ber if you are be­hind this idea. — D.A, Sandgate
