Beach replenishment works - November & December
As part of the South Australian Government's 'Adelaide's Living Beaches' program beach replenishment work will commence on Monday, 2 November 2015. Sand carting is expected to run for up to six weeks, allowing for inclement weather and tides. The planned works are as follows:
- Approximately 8,000 m3 of sand will be recycled from the beach both north and south of Semaphore Jetty, and used to replenish the beach between Paxton Street and Arthur Street, Semaphore South.
- Approximately 8,000 m3 of sand will be recycled from the beach adjacent the Semaphore South Breakwater, and used to replenish the beach between Third Avenue and the Surf Lifesaving Hut south of the Mirani Court public access way, Semaphore Park.
- Approximately 1,500 m3 of sand will be recycled from the beach in from of Escourt Road, Tennyson, and used to replenish the beach between Bournemouth Street and the first public access way south of Moredun Street, Tennyson.
Trucking will take place between the hours of 7:00am and 7:00pm, Monday to Friday, and possibly between 8:00am and 2:00pm on Saturdays.
Local residents and beach users are asked to take care during periods when sand carting works are in progress.
A site foreman will be available on site for discussions of matters of concern.
