Take a walk on the sustainable side

The Redlands Cycling & Pedestrian Strategy (2016) is well underway with the construction of a dual-use walkway at Hilliard’s Creek crossing in the South East Queensland suburb of Ormiston nearing completion.

Constructed collaboratively by Replas Diamond Club Members Shapescapes and Designer Decks, the walkway will provide local residents with an environmentally sustainable crossing.

Due for completion mid December 2013, the pedestrian and cycle-friendly walkway was built using 1060 three metre boards of Replas’ Enduroplank. This has saved over twenty tons of waste plastic going to landfill—equivalent to 13 holden station wagons.

  

Footbridge hits the mark

On budget and on time, that’s the target every project aims for. Add in a material that’s durable as well as sustainable and you have a winning combination that really hits the mark.

A stunning 56 metre pedestrian bridge across Rifle Range Creek at Bagara has just been completed by Bundaberg Council in Queensland using Enduroplank™ decking with a composite fibre sub-structure.

‘This is a fantastic and much anticipated project which has completed a missing link of our Coastal Turtle Trail,’ said Bundaberg Divisional Councillor Greg Barnes. The materials chosen are both perfect in this coastal location as they are extremely hard wearing, long lasting and will not corrode, rust, or rot—unlike many alternatives.

  

 

 

Construction has commenced

Kapiti Coast District council, just north of Wellington, in New Zealand, wanted to provide a safer more easily maintained alternative to their existing timber/gravel access ramp at Waikanae Beach. Replas New Zealand distributor, Metal Art Ltd is working with Diamond Club Member Asplundh to remove the existing structure, re-route the pathway and supply and install an Enduroplank™ beach access pathway in its place.

  

Replas impresses Bega Valley Council

No wonder staff at Bega Valley Shire Council were impressed with the Replas mobile display trailer. Fitted out with a variety of recycled-plastic products including bollards, furniture, and Enduroplank decking, the trailer is a fantastic way to get a hands-on feel for these long-lasting products. 

 

 

If you would like to view the trailer, call 1800 REPLAS to book a visit. 

    

Shorty’s Staircase

A revisit to the boardwalk at Lennox Point, shows the beach pathway is still in pristine condition almost four years after it was installed. A plaque on the staircase commemorates Ron (Shorty) Connors who according to local legend was the heart and soul of surfing in the 60s & 70s. The long-lasting Enduroplank™ provides a fitting platform for a dedication that needs to stand the test of time.

  

Harden Shire Council Visit

When the Replas product display trailer recently arrived in Harden, NSW, council staff, Michael Burns—Engineering Assistant, and Mark Crisp—Director of Technical Services, were waiting to view the range of long-lasting and low-maintenance products.

Calling all Councils

Shoalhaven Council has used many Replas products in a local park at Huskisson, located between Sussex Inlet and Kiama in NSW. Recycled-plastic bollards and wheel stops are used in the car park to define the area and protect the environment. Profiles were chosen to create the perfect garden edging while Enduroplank™ decking was the ideal product to build a new pathway. Not only do all of the products look fantastic, but as they are virtually maintenance free the council will also save on upkeep.

  

 

Built to last

Fort Courage is home to the Wentworth Angling Club and the location of monthly fishing competitions. Replas recently supplied materials for the construction of an access structure to two floating pontoons located along this magnificent stretch of the Murray River.

Steve Govan, the caretaker of Fort Courage Caravan Park, said that the materials were selected because, ‘there was no maintenance required and the structure would be there forever’. The composite fibre and Enduroplank™ structure, which was constructed by Diamond Club Member DFAB, is built to withstand 10 year flood levels. The team took under four days to complete the structure and Steve commended them on their ability to work together and to get the job done.

All packed up and ready to go

The new NSW trailer is packed to capacity with bollards, signage and Enduroplank decking. If you wish to view the mobile display at your location call 1800 REPLAS to make a booking. Bert and Spiro will be happy to bring the show to you.

All in the line of duty

Balnarring Primary School, in Victoria, raised money to redevelop the Nature Trail, winding through their precious flora and fauna. A team from local Navy base, HMAS Cerberus, along with Replas representatives Peter Patterson and James Renwick, went down to lend a hand with the installation of a new boardwalk made from recycled plastic Enduroplank™.

Both HMAS Cerberus and Replas were pleased to be able to assist the school to realise the project. All parties worked hard and efficiently to produce a fantastic outcome for the primary school.
