Works Complete at The Esplanade, Narrabeen to Reduce Rock-Falls Risk

Posted: 16 Jul 2019
Northern Beaches Council has completed the second section of a retaining wall at The Esplanade in Narrabeen to improve safety for road users and residents.

The wall was built to stabilise the adjacent slope and reduce the risk of possible slippage and rock-falls onto The Esplanade roadway.

The works are a continuation of project’s first stage, completed in 2009, and included the construction of a 36-metre-long concrete post-and-panel retaining wall, up to five-metres high, situated alongside The Esplanade. A new fence will be installed between the first and second stages of the retaining wall in July 2019.

Council extended the wall in work recently completed, after tension-cracks were detected at the top of the roadside embankment.

Mayor Michael Regan said Council allocated $1.4 million dollars to build the extension of the wall.

“Our priority is to keep our residents and community safe, so stabilising the embankment is a priority,” Mayor Regan said.

“We remain vigilant in regularly monitoring this site alongside other high risk sites across the Northern Beaches.

“This is such a beautiful part of the Narrabeen Lake trail and we want it be preserved and accessible so it can be enjoyed by everyone for many years to come,” Mayor Regan said.
