The View from Queensland: Coastal Protection Continues

After a couple years in service, the geotextile container shoreline stabilization and protection strategy at this Queensland location continues to thrive.
Geofabrics Australasia

A couple years ago, Geofabrics Australasia helped a private landowner correct beachfront erosion and provide a long-term shoreline protection strategy. The landowner sent a photograph to Geofabrics this week of the coastline at high tide. The geotextile bag design is providing exemplary support. Settlement and erosion are not appearing. The installation remains strong.

The ELCOROCK® geotextile container system is one of Geofabrics Australasia’s coastal protection options. It has even outmuscled Category 5 typhoons. You can see more projects like the Queensland success at http://www.elcorock.com.
