Banks, L. and Foran, A.T. . 1997. Hampton beach renourishment Port Phillip Bay, Victoria.. University of Canterbury Private Bag 4800 Christchurch New Zealand, Centre for Advanced Engineering: 419-423. Advanced Engineering: 419-423.
Hampton Beach Renourishment is the first major beach renourishment project in Port Phillip Bay for 10 years. The long standing proposal for the project was originally developed as a second stage in conjunction with works that were completed in 1987. When $3.2m became available over 1996/97 and 1997/98 the design was fully re-evaluated. It found that the scope for options was limited by the need to incorporate two stormwater drain extensions. The proposal that was recommended, from analysis with more modern numerical models and experience, reduced the rock anchor groynes from three to two but increased the beach width from 30 m to 50 m. Cost offsets from deleting the third groyne and a drain diversion enabled a new relocated lifesaving club to be included within the same overall budget.
