Shire of Ir­win

The Shire of Ir­win will re­place sand at Grannies Beach di­rectly in front of a fallen re­tain­ing wall while the coun­cil con­sults the com­mu­nity about an ap­pro­pri­ate de­sign for a re­place­ment wall. This is ex­pected to make the area fully func­tional for the peak sum­mer sea­son, with a per­ma­nent so­lu­tion in place be­fore next win­ter.

Ir­win Shire has ne­go­ti­ated with Main Roads WA to open Milo Cross­ing to larger trucks for the har­vest sea­son. Lo­cal farm­ers ex­ten­sively use the cross­ing for grain haulage, but it is cur­rently only suit­able for smaller trucks. Last week, the Shire was suc­cess­ful in im­ple­ment­ing a tem­po­rary so­lu­tion through the sup­port of Main Roads WA.
