Adelaide beach management review

In April 2022 the South Australian Government announced that construction of a sand recycling pipeline between West Beach and Semaphore South will be halted.

Instead a comprehensive review of all options available will be undertaken to ensure a long-term solution is found which puts community and the environment at the core.

Externally sourced sand will continue to be brought into West Beach from quarries and the Semaphore South breakwater while the review is completed.

More information on the review and community engagement will be provided when available.
