The construction of two, 30-metre rock groynes at Holloways Beach are expected to improve the beach amenity and provide long-term protection of the foreshore.
Sand erosion has been an ongoing concern at Holloways Beach, with various beach nourishment campaigns initiated over the years due to ongoing sand loss along the beach.
The most recent campaign, in 2016, involved pumping approximately 30,000 cubic metres of sand onto the beach at of cost of $640,000. This sand was washed away in a very short period of weeks.
Council has approved the $2 million construction of two groynes, at the end of Oleander St and Pandanus St, which will maximise the benefits of future beach nourishment programs by reducing the amount of sand being washed away.
