Evans beach closed while clean up job undertaken

RICHMOND Valley Council has advised Evans Head residents and visitors that Main Beach will be closed today and tomorrow to allow large machinery to work on tapering the two-metre high sand bank which has developed over recent weeks.

Work is being undertaken from the northern breakwall for about 400 metres along the beach.

Wednesday will also see the beach cleaner in action, getting the sand ready for Easter holidaymakers.
