  • Fairy Bower Pool Upgrade

    3 months ago

    Fairy Bower Pool is built upon large rock boulders, which over time have resulted in an uneven and cracked floor. We plan to carry out works to even and seal the bottom of the pool and prevent seepage.

    We proposed a solution that meets the community preference for excavating the bottom of the pool and laying a new base to ensure no loss in pool depth. We are aware of the community’s desire to resume using the pool (post-storm damage and closure of the area) and recognise its high demand.

    We sought feedback on the proposed solution and the preferred timing of the works, which can only be carried out at low tide. Both options require the pool to be closed for approximately one month.

  • East Coast Low Damage June 2016

    3 months ago

    In June 2016 storm waves smashed the Northern Beaches. Marine Parade in Manly was hard hit. The waves ripped up cement slabs and stone blocks and tossed them out to sea. The adjacent sea wall, cliff face and underlying sewage pipes were damaged. In addition the Fairy Bower toilet block was demolished and washed out to sea.

    Clean up and repairs began immediately.

    Sydney Water repaired and secured the three large sewer pipes which run under the walkway.

    Cranes were used to retrieve the concrete slabs and sandstone blocks from the water. The heritage sea wall was then repaired and the concrete footpath rebuilt, with new timber handrails and posts.

    The entire cliff face above the walkway was inspected by a geotechnical company. One section needed rock bolting and shot-crete work to make it stable.

    Fairy Bower Pool was cleared of debris. “Oceanides” the twin ladies sculpture on the pool edge was made safe after one of the twins was snapped in half by the force of the waves.
