Newport Headwall 

Location: Beach Car Park, Barrenjoey Rd, NEWPORT NSW

Client: Northern Beaches Council

Product: Various (see below)

Due to heavy rain, this high-profile site in Newport had major erosion problems around one of its stormwater outlets. In addition, the existing services needed to be well-protected and a full landscaping plan executed. Northern Beaches Council decided to perform the work themselves with Polyfabrics’ assistance in providing solutions.


Sandbank erosion around the storm water outlet had been a big problem over the years and the council sought a solution.The site which is adjacent to Newport Beach Car Park (a heavy-trafficked area) had to be well-fenced over the work duration.The Council Project Team also had to work within a tight time-frame to finish the project.


The Council’s Engineers finalised the design drawings and worked with Polyfabrics to select the most practical methods and cost-effective solutions to solve the issues of frequent erosion. The solution was in using Polyfabrics’ jute mat, coir logs, ecologs, flexipipes, fencing cloth, fabric, detectamesh and all accessories needed (see below).
