Coastal ten­ders on agenda

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

THE Wan­neroo City Coun­cil will tonight con­sider award­ing a ten­der to build and ex­tend groynes at Quinns Beach.

The long-term coastal pro­tec­tion works project will in­clude three stages of works, start­ing with con­struc­tion of a fourth groyne north of ex­ist­ing struc­tures and beach ac­cess ramp this fi­nan­cial year.

It pro­poses a 45m ex­ten­sion to the se­cond groyne in 2018-19 and 15m ex­ten­sion to the third one in 2019-20.

Each year would also in­clude works to add sand to the beach – 8400 cu­bic me­tres in 2017-18, then 14,400 and 10,800 re­spec­tively the fol­low­ing two years.

Four ten­der sub­mis­sions were re­ceived for the al­most $7.75 mil­lion project.

The works are part of a long-term strat­egy to pre­vent se­vere coastal ero­sion as oc­curred in 2013.
