The City of West Torrens in SA had experienced rot and white ant damage in footbridges throughout the area. Rather than continue to spend money on maintenance the council chose to source an alternative building product.

Nine bridges were revamped with the addition of Enduroplank™ decking and composite fibre handrail both chosen to minimise, or exclude maintenance costs and to provide an asset with extended useful life.

‘It’s all about buying Australian products, saving Council money, time, having no or little maintenance and use a pro-active approach to specifying sustainable products for all outdoor uses, and Replas ticks all those boxes’.
