Three years ago Holdfast Bay Council approached Replas with a concept for Coast Park that included an up-market set of pedestrian structures, viewing decks and beach access pathways.
John Perkins, Project Officer Infrastructure, City of Holdfast Bay, said, ‘With this project we wanted to use products that would serve us for the long term, reducing our maintenance’.
John said, ‘This product and this project has turned out extremely well and we are happy with the material that has been used in this location’.
Recycled-plastic Enduroplank™ decking was chosen because it is sustainable and also highly durable. Composite fibre provided the perfect sub-structure as it is three times stronger than steel, one third of the weight and doesn’t corrode in a high-salinity environment.
The first stage of this boardwalk alone has saved the equivalent of 2.1 million plastic bags from landfill.
