Sandy beaches restored around Tuggerah Lakes

Tons of sand are being spread over lake beaches at Long Jetty, Budgewoi and Lake Munmorah this week to refresh foreshore areas.

This work by Central Coast Council will replace the sand washed away during the recent lake rises and recent extended periods of rainfall.  

Work started on Tuesday, June 14 and continue until Friday, June 24 and some areas will be restricted while the sandy beaches are restored.

Some areas along the Long Jetty foreshore on Tuggerah Pde, opposite Archbold St, will be temporarily closed off but there will be minimal interruption to public access.

Salt marsh swale maintenance works is also taking place at Long Jetty to clean out sediment and vegetation so that the stormwater quality improvement infrastructure functions efficiently.

Mackenzie Reserve’s carpark at Budgewoi will be partially closed while work is done.

The access road and carpark at Lake Munmorah’s Tom Burke Reserve on Dianne Ave will be temporarily closed while the sand replenishment work is undertaken.
