In 2008, the Sunshine Coast Council purchased three bridges to be installed by the Bridge Maintenance Division. Replas provided assistance and instruction to the team, as did staff from Wagners—who manufacture the composite fibre.
The bridges have a composite fibre sub-structure with an Enduroplank™ deck. Two of the bridges form part of a trail that is used by horses. This presented an issue as horses require a solid surface underfoot in order to feel safe. The council solved the problem by using a wet pour rubber over the top of the Enduroplank™.
The council is very happy with the look and presentation of the bridges and is looking forward to the extra life span with almost zero maintenance.
