Dredging complete at Lancelin

News for the Department of Transport


The Department of Transport (DoT) has completed its latest maintenance dredging campaign at Lancelin – ensuring safe navigation and access to Lancelin Jetty and wider local beaches this spring.

DoT Maritime Executive Director Steve Jenkins said the $600,000 three-month project had been completed on time and on budget with the help of the local community.

“More than 10,000 cubic metres of sand was dredged from the channels, and most of it was deposited on Grace Darling Beach south of the jetty,” Mr Jenkins said.

“The additional sand will widen the beach enhancing the enjoyment of the area by the local community and visitors this spring.

“The work was undertaken in close consultation with the Shire of Gingin and we are very pleased to achieve this outcome for the community.”

The project team acknowledged the cooperation of skippers and beach goers who assisted in the successful completion of the project abiding by the special safety arrangements implemented for the dredging and sand replenishment works.

DoT’s maintenance dredging program along the WA coastline provides ongoing safe access to and from key boating facilities.
