Sand moved from Pages Beach to Beresford Foreshore

photo The Port Authority are underway in their transport of approximately 6,250m3 of sand from Pages Beach to Beresford Foreshore.

As part of the Northern Beaches Stabilisation Programme, the works began on Monday, May 19, and will conclude on Friday, May 23.

The purpose of the sand by-passing is to feed sediment into the longshore current operating in a northerly direction along the Geraldton coastline.

Through a coastal process known as littoral transport, the sand by-passing provides sediment to Geraldton’s northern beaches through the action of the breaking waves and the longshore current.
