HIGHWAY patrol officers have cracked down on hoons congregating on Kooragang Island near Nobbys beach.

Police handed out dozens of fines and issued defect notices for more than 20 cars in the latest incident on an industrial road off Cormorant Drive.

A large convoy of car enthusiasts gathered there before heading into Nobbys Beach car park.

More than 600 people were herded from the same area a week earlier.

Senior police will develop a solution with the Newcastle Port Corporation and Newcastle council, which might involve making parts of the island no-go zones for all traffic.
