Seven years ago, three termite infested timber bridges were reconstructed by Banyule City Council in Victoria using recycled-plastic Enduroplank™ decking. With no appetite for plastic the white ants have long since moved on.

Pat Gardiner, Co-ordinator Roads, Infrastructure, Maintenance, at Banyule City Council, said not only was the initial installation simple, but there is now, ‘little or no maintenance,’ on the bridges resulting in, ‘a big saving for the residents of Banyule City Council and Council,’ and best of all, ‘no more wood rot, or insect problems’.
