Executive Summary

The spectacular Eastern Beaches Coastal Walkway in Sydney’s eastern suburbs is enjoyed by millions of people every year. However with several gaps between Clovelly and La Perouse, it was still incomplete. Fleetwood was chosen to work with Antoun Civil and Thompson Berrill Landscape Design to deliver a critical missing link in the walkway for Randwick City Council – an iconic sixth hole buggy boardwalk at the prestigious NSW Golf Course. The new structure also doubled as a pedestrian bridge to help walkers safely traverse through the golf course on the La Perouse headland.

Fleetwood involvement

Fleetwood’s initial involvement was assisting Antoun Civil with creative ideas for its tender. After Antoun was formally appointed to the project, we worked closely with them, Randwick City Council and Thompson Berrill Landscape Design to deliver the very best outcome. We began by developing the detail of the chosen design to ensure it met all of the project objectives, from the budget and timeline to the aesthetic vision and environmental considerations. Material selection was critical and saw us specify a combination of sturdy natural materials and fibre reinforced plastics (FRP) to ensure the walkway could withstand the harsh coastal conditions for many years to come. Natural timbers and finishes were also chosen to help the boardwalk blend into the rugged environment. To minimise disruptions to the local habitat – and local golfers – the steel plate substructures were fabricated in our Sydney workshop, before being carefully hand-installed onsite.
