Northglen News

The eThekwini Municipality moves quickly with sand replenishment operations at several beaches ahead of a busy festive season.

The eThekwini Municipality has announced that parts of Suncoast Beach, Bay of Plenty and Dairy Beach will remain closed for sand replenishment operations.

The replenishment operations come after several beaches were damaged by the storm that wreaked havoc in Durban recently. It damaged concrete covers along the walkways, filled the promenades with sand and littered the beaches with debris.

On their Facebook page they said: “Beach replenishment at these locations are been undertaken through an off shore system. This pumping operation is similar to the current beach feeder line process and will allow the City to meet its needs prior to the December festive season.”

“Residents and tourists can enjoy other parts of our beautiful beaches. We will announce the completion of this project,” they added.
