Sand levels to be restored at St Brelade's

01 July 2014

The Transport and Technical Services Department will be moving sand to cover the areas of the beach at St Brelade where stones have been left exposed by recent storms.

Work is due to start on Wednesday 2 July at 2pm and will continue between the tides for approximately five more days.

It was thought that the stones may be covered naturally but, while there has been some improvement to the sand levels over the last 12 weeks since the storms, this process has been very slow and full restoration could still be some months away if nature is left to take its course.

The Minister for Transport and Technical Services, Deputy Kevin Lewis, has therefore decided that action needs to be taken as St Brelade's is a major tourist beach and we are nearing the peak holiday months.

The section of the beach that will be replenished is approximately 350 metres in length and 16 metres wide, stretching from the fisherman’s slipway at the west end of the bay to a point in front of the Golden Sands Hotel towards the east.
