THE latest stage of coastal management work at Quinns Beach includes a $2.1 million upgrade and extension of groyne three and refilling beach sand.

The beach and car park adjacent to Fred Stubbs Park will remain open to the public for the majority of the works.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said Quinns Dog Beach, the dog beach car park on Camira Way and dog beach access ramp would also remain open.

“Stage three is expected to be completed by January 2020 with most of the work scheduled to be finished before Christmas, provided the weather is good,” she said.

“This work is important for the environment and I urge residents and beach users to be patient and mindful when they are in the area.

“The State Government contributed $300,000 towards the project through a Coastal Adaptation and Protection Grant and our community is grateful for that support.”

The City announced plans for the project in July, and the work is part of a $6.76 million contract with WA Limestone and Italia Stone Group.
