At a meeting designed to workshop elements of the new City Planning Scheme with residents, Townsville Councillor, Trevor Roberts, revealed the plans and artist’s impressions for the 710-metre engineered walkway to be constructed on Magnetic Island. The plans illustrate a boardwalk style walkway constructed of recycled-plastic decking boards with stainless steel balustrade and handrails. Cr Roberts said the walkway would be constructed in two sections. The first, from Geoffrey Bay towards Nelly Bay, will be 350 m long by 2.5 m wide leading to the first of two viewing platforms. Replas has already supplied the Enduroplank™ decking boards for this exciting project which will also be disabled access compliant.
