Neumann Dredging is once again undertaking the vital dredging works in Tallebudgera Creek to provide sand for the popular Burleigh Beach.
The works are a part of Gold Coast City Council annual dredging and beach nourishment program. This year around 40,000m3 of beautiful clean sand will be dredged from Tallebudgera Creek and pumped 1,800 metres to be distributed on Burleigh Beach.
Today the Gold Coast Mayor, Tom Tate visited the site and talked to Ian Bruhl from Neumann Dredging. Mayor Tom Tate said it is very important the beaches are in top shape for beachgoers.
“Our beaches are the jewel in our city’s crown and it’s important we look after them for generations to come.
“The City allocates over $1 million for sand nourishment works to take place every year to ensure our beaches are in great condition for summer.
“These important works help protect community infrastructure from coastal erosion and keep our coastline looking beautiful.
“It’s been a difficult year for tourism, so it is as important as ever for the Gold Coast to be looking its best as we welcome visitors back to the region.”
Once the dredging is finished here, the dredge will be moved to Currumbin Creek for similar plenishment works on Palm Beach.
