HELP FOR NSW FARMERS AFFECTED BY STORMS & FLOODS
Did you know that the NSW Government is providing grants to farmers affected by the recent storms and floods?
Floods damaged your property infrastructure?
Your farm infrastructure affected by natural disaster, may be eligible for grants under the Future Resilience program.
What is future resilience?
Future resilience is repairing or building back an asset or infrastructure so that it can withstand future natural disasters and improve the ability to respond, recover and adapt after natural disaster events. Future resilience is sometimes referred to as ‘betterment’.
A key test for betterment projects is whether they leave infrastructure less vulnerable to the impacts of natural disasters.
Some examples of infrastructure under this scheme:
- Road and driveway washouts
- Bridges and Causeways
- Eroded deep gullies
- Dam spillways and overflows washout
See some examples of Australian Concrete Mats to protect and prevent damage against future heavy rain and flood events.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT MAT FOR YOUR FLOOD REPAIR
Australian Concrete Mats take pride in their performance and specifying the right product for the right application. They manufacture two types of concrete erosion mats:
COST SAVINGS WITH QUICK RESULTS
The mats prevent and minimise these issues on roads and crossings;
- Grass or muddy tracks becoming slippery and boggy
- Dirt and gravel roads and driveways being washing out
- Sloped or gradients causing washouts
- Roadside drains being filled and blocked with excess debris
- Unsafe access to soft edges of dams and drains, preventing regular mowing and clearing
- Drains not able to be mowed without getting bogged or cut deeper trenches into the drains
- Dam spillways and overflows
- Valuable topsoils and roadbase washing away
- Blockage to natural flow of creeks and crossings during high flow times
