Altona Beach Renourishment

Council is undertaking a range of foreshore projects in Altona and Seaholme that will mitigate expected impacts of climate change. The beach renourishment works, one of Council’s key foreshore projects, will preserve and enhance our city’s well-loved beaches, create a stronger barrier against natural impacts and improve beach access for our community.

Council has begun its beach renourishment project at Altona Beach, between Sarros and Maidstone Streets. An expected four trucks per hour will deliver approximately 27,000 tonnes of freshly quarried sand to the foreshore. Working hours will be between 7am and 5pm. Every effort will be made to minimise the noise levels and traffic impacts from these activities.

Works are scheduled for completion in July 2018. During these works, road closures will not be required and the Hobsons Bay Coastal Trail will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists through the duration of the project works. Traffic and pedestrian management will be in place on the Esplanade to stop traffic and path users when required, to enable trucks to safely deliver the sand onto the beach.

The section of beach being renourished between Sarros Street and Maidstone Street will be closed to the public and fenced off as a works site for the duration of the project.

Council would like to thank you in advance for your patience while these important works are under way.
