Shifting sands to safeguard Bournemouth's beach quality
10:00am Saturday 2nd March 2013 in News
WORK is underway to safeguard Bournemouth’s famous beaches with thousands of tonnes of sand being shifted along the seafront.
Wind and wave action over time has made the redistribution work necessary and Bournemouth council contractors hope the scheme will be completed by the end of next week.
Seafront operations manager And-rew Brown said: “The work is progressing well; it involves five large slow moving vehicles tracking up and down the beach moving the sand, with banksmen, so residents and visitors using the prom won’t be affected.”
