Traffic Delays Expected For Delivery of Pipes to Entrance Beach
by Gaye Crispin
The preparations are currently underway for the start of essential works to help restore The Entrance Beach, the Wyong Shire Council informs.
Pipes are being delivered to The Entrance next week signalling the start of essential works to help restore The Entrance Beach.
Wyong Shire Council was receiving the first round of pipes yesterday to Karagi Point, The Entrance North and the balance of the pipes is expected to be delivered next Friday 25 September.
In order to make sure the pipes are delivered safely, Council will have temporary road closures in place along Marine Parade between Beach Street and Fairport Avenue.
The road closures are essential for the safety of the community as the pipes are lowered by crane onto the beach.
The extra pipes are being delivered to help address erosion at The Entrance Beach and counter concerns raised by key community groups.
It is planned to connect the pipes to the dredge on Monday 28 September. The dredge and pipes should be in place by mid-October ready to pump excess sand from The Entrance channel to the beach – up to 20,000 cubic metres!
The dredging program is expected to be finished in November.
