Reeling at radar array

RED Rock residents are concerned about the placing of a scientific radar array on the beach of their picturesque and popular village.

The high-frequency radar antenna array and service module to be installed at Red Rock is an ocean monitoring station, which is part of the Australian Coastal Ocean Radar Network that will monitor surface currents and their interaction with the continental shelf and coastal zone.

Red Rock resident George Flynn said he was in favour of the array but would prefer a more aesthetic but still practical site further along the beach.

He said the proposed siting would dominate the most popular area of the beach and would greatly diminish the present pristine vista.

He said the line of antennas would give the appearance of a high fence and would be examined by the public, causing damage to flora and possible dunal erosion.
