Quinns Beach Long Term Coastal Management
Construction Update - 15 January 2018
Dune earthworks have been completed and groyne construction will commence at Quinns Beach adjacent to Queenscliff Park on 15 January 2018. Beach closures will apply adjacent to the work area. Please do not enter the construction site for your own safety. Other areas of Quinns Dog Beach will remain open including beach access locations at the existing northern groyne and Waterland Point.
Construction Update – 15 December 2017
Dune earthworks continue due to delays associated with limestone buried in the dune. These delays are not expected to impact on the overall construction timeframe. Groyne construction works are expected to commence in January 2018.
Construction Update – 24 November 2017
Works commenced on site on 14 November 2017. Dune earthworks are underway in preparation for the construction of the beach access ramp.
Update 31 October 2017
Following Council’s decision at its Ordinary Meeting on 10 October 2017 (AS02-10/17), WA Limestone, Italia Stone Group Joint Venture have been appointed to undertake the Quinns Beach Long Term Coastal Management Works over three separate stages as follows:
- Stage 1 (2017/18) – Construction of Groyne 4 (60m), Beach Renourishment (8,400m3) and Groyne 4 Beach Access Ramp;
- Stage 2 (2018/19) – Extension of Groyne 2 by 45m and Beach Renourishment (14,400m3); and
- Stage 3 (2019/20) – Extension of Groyne 3 by 15m and Beach Renourishment (10,800m3)
Stage 1 Works are expected to commence shortly with WA Limestone, Italia Stone Group Joint Venture mobilising on site from 13 November 2017. These works will be located adjacent to Queenscliff Park as shown in the figure below. Stage 1 works will be completed by the end of February 2018, subject to site conditions and suitable weather during construction. The completion of these works will assist with the management of ongoing erosion issues along the Quinns Dog Beach and reduce the requirement for ongoing beach re-nourishment in this area.
Note that temporary beach and path closures will apply adjacent to the work site and signage and fencing will be in place to manage public access in these areas. The Queenscliff car park will be utilised by the Contractor and closed to the public during the works. Whilst it is inevitable that works of this nature will cause some inconvenience, every endeavour will be made to ensure that this is kept to a minimum.
