Sorrento Beach Enclosure storm damage

Categories:

A section of the Sorrento Beach Enclosure was damaged during a storm on Wednesday 25 July, resulting in a part of the barrier being torn off the anchoring system.

There is now a gap in the barrier structure, between the floats that sit on top of the water and the ocean floor, extending about 50m outwards from Hillarys Boat Harbour. Repairs to the enclosure are scheduled to be completed by mid-October in time for the busy summer period.

The City will be installing advisory signage on the beach to notify beach users of the damage and that repair work will be undertaken.

The City apologises for any inconvenience this may cause regular users of the beach enclosure and will provide regular updates on repairs via its website and social media channels.
