The 25 kilometre shared pathway along the new Peninsula Link, in Victoria, is one of the single biggest additions to Melbourne’s shared use path network since the EastLink Trail. The path will feature Replas Enduroplank™ decking on footbridges and over 42 directional signs throughout.
Installer Darren Shiels, from DFAB has gone to great lengths to ensure no debris made its way into the waterways that are home to the Dwarf Glaxias. This potentially threatened species of fish has suffered greatly from loss of habitat due to drainage of wetlands throughout Victoria. Darren was careful to collect all plastic trimmings from the site to help preserve the precious habitat of this dwindling species.
The plastic collected at the site will be made into a seat to be placed along the trail as a gift to the community.
