Geraldton’s Point Moore beach is undergoing erosion mitigation works that will last over the weekend. The City of Greater Geraldton announced that starting on Thursday, works would begin on the beach which involved placing additional sandbags and sand nourishment in front of the Geraldton Marine Rescue building. The area of work will be fenced off but access to the public toilets will still be available. Members of the community are urged to exercise caution around the area for the next couple of days. In August last year, it was revealed 15m of coastline was lost in front of the building, placing it at extreme risk of erosion and needing volunteers to create a manmade sand wall as a stopgap measure. The works comes just days after the State Government announced Geraldton would receive almost $650,000 funding for coastal erosion protection. But Sunset Beach is taking up the bulk of that funding. The Point Moore works are expected to take four days to complete and be done by next week. The City allocated $100,000 in its budget in case erosion forces the need to demolish the sea rescue building and public toilets.
