Dredging completed in Tallebugera Creek

Annual Dredging and Beach Nourishment Works Completed

Neumann Dredging have completed the dredging works in Tallebudgera Creek.  This year over 26,000 m3 of clean sand was dredged from the Tallebudgera Creek to replenish the sand on Burleigh Beach.  The sand is pumped overland and released in the southern end of Burleigh Beach, near the Burleigh Beach Pavilion and spread up to 350m northwards.

Neumann Dredging have undertaken the dredging works in Tallebudgera Creek for many years now, and the works are an integral part of the Gold Coast City Council’s program to maintain and replenish the sand on Gold Coast beaches.

The Nu Enterprise, a 250mm Cutter Suction Dredge, a land based booster pump and up to 1.8km of pipeline were used to complete the works.
