Brunswick River and harbour dredging to start

Posted on August 20, 2015

DREDGING of the Brunswick River and harbour is due to start this week.

The $410,000 project comes after a bed-level survey identified shallow areas that required maintenance dredging for safe navigation.

“Earlier this month a 40-foot vessel making an emergency stop was grounded for three hours on Brunswick River shoals so the dredging is timely,” Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis said.

“Around 10,000 cubic metres of clean marine sand will be dredged from the Brunswick River channel and pumped north to New Brighton Beach where it will be used for beach nourishment.”
