Enduroplank™ bridges the walkway gap

After decades of being synonymous with Auckland's wastewater treatment Puketutu Island in Auckland, New Zealand, is now a place people want to visit.

As part of the redevelopment of the area, Watercare Services Ltd chose recycled-plastic to create bench seating and used Enduroplank™ decking to bridge a spillway for the convenience of cyclists and walkers along the Manukau Coastal walkway.

By using recycled plastic on the project, Watercare has saved the equivalent of 658,000 plastic bags from ending up in landfill.  

  

Enduroplank™ becomes the rule in Banyule

Pat Gardiner of the Major Projects and Infrastructure, City of Banyule, has been utilising Replas’ recycled-plastic Enduroplank™ decking for years. Pat started by replacing the rotting and splitting timber decking on existing structures with our long lasting and durable recycled-plastic alternative.

Below you will see one example that Pat installed over seven years ago, still going strong, and with a sturdy steel structure. This bridge will be an asset to the community for many decades to come.

 

That's not a path, this is a path

Unless you’re Crocodile Dundee there are two things you have to remember when walking through Simpson’s Gap in the West Macdonnell National Park, Northern Territory: Stick to the bike path and you’re not Crocodile Dundee.

Needing repair, the bike path and bridge have been upgraded using Replas’ Enduroplank™, which is made from recycled plastic rather than materials that are detrimental to the environment. Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Minster Karl Hampton said, ‘Here at Simpson’s Gap repairs and upgrades to the Bike Path Bridge are now complete, leaving us a safer bridge for riders and a great natural aesthetic. Every year more than 120,000 people visit the magnificent West MacDonnell National Park, and by investing in our parks we are able to ensure visitors have a unique experience while we protect our environment.’

Using environmentally friendly and sturdy products like Enduroplank™ to maintain the bike path and bridge, has ensured that beauties like the West Macdonnell National Park can continue to be enjoyed without causing damage to the environment or risking a hiker stumbling across a crocodile.

Creating better structures

Composite fibre is becoming the product of choice for clients looking for an alternative to traditional timber structures. It is low maintenance and light, yet extremely strong and can be pre-assembled on site or freighted in complete. Replas is very experienced in creating structures using composite fibre and offers a complete service from design to installation.

Enduroplank™ comes out on top

Nambucca Shire Council, in NSW, required a strong, durable pedestrian deck to be installed next to an existing road bridge. An existing timber and bitumen surface had deteriorated due to floods that had gone over the bridge seven times in five years. The surface was refurbished by laying an Enduroplank™ floating deck over the top. This provided the perfect solution and will easily cope with any future flood waters.

    

Can we build it?

An 8m bridge at Wallaman Falls National Park, Mount Fox, in Queensland was built by a contractor in Townsville using Enduroplank decking. It was then disassembled and taken up to Wallaman Falls where it was easily re-assembled by National Parks rangers. The recycled-plastic Enduroplank decking was also used to create a ramp to the toilet block.

          

A bridge over Tribulation waters

A 7 metre bridge made from composite fibre and recycled-plastic decking spans a gully in the rainforest of Cape Tribulation, Queensland. This timber free structure is perfect in this harsh environment as it is resistant to moisture, microorganisms and termites.

 

Launceston leads the way

Launceston City Council are the first in Tasmania to install a bridge made from Enduroplank™ and composite fibre. This wood free structure is not only sustainable, but offers superior strength and durability when compared with traditional materials.

       

Launceston City Council bridges the gap

Due to the fact that Enduroplank™ is extremely low maintenance, Launceston City Council, in Tasmania, chose the recycled-plastic decking to complete a new bridge in Youngtown.

Wagners CFT and sub-contractor BridgePro assembled and installed the bridge which features a composite fibre sub-surface. Installation was hassle free and the bridge will now provide a long-lasting and maintenance-free structure.

        

 

New trails link community to recycling solution

Pittwater and Warringah Councils in NSW have worked together to link new and existing trails to circumnavigate the foreshores of the Narrabeen Lagoon. This multi-use trail project features a new pedestrian/cyclist bridge which has been constructed using durable recycled-plastic Enduroplank™ decking. The decking not only provides a long lasting solution for the bridge, but has also contributed to a reduction in the amount of plastic going to landfill.
