Quinns Beach Long Term Coastal Management

The City has recently completed the following stages of major construction works along the Quinns Rocks coastline in accordance with the recommendations put forward in the Quinns Beach Long Term Coastal Management Study:

  • Stage 1 (2017/18) - Groyne 4, beach access ramp and beach renourishment.
  • Stage 2 (2018/19) - Extension of groyne 2 and beach renourishment.
  • Stage 3 (2019/20) - Extension of groyne 3 and beach renourishment.
  • Groyne 1 Maintenance and Upgrade Works (2020/21).

These works were completed on time and within budget. The new and extended groyne structures are already showing benefits relating to the natural trapping of sand particularly to the south of the structures during summer conditions and a reduction in operational beach re-nourishment requirements (excluding recent impacts from extreme storm events over the 2020 winter season).

Should you have any queries in relation to the Quinns Beach Long Term Coastal Management Project please contact the City’s Specialist Coastal Engineer, Mr Rory Ellyard, on 9405 5883.
