Refurbishment works along the Shoalwater Foreshore Reserve, in WA, include access paths made from recycled-plastic decking. The project, overseen by the City of Rockingham, replaced ageing timber walkways and access points to ensure the structure fits comfortably with the fragile dune environment as well as being aesthetically pleasing.

City of Rockingham Mayor, Barry Sammels said, ‘This has become a popular spot for both local people and for visitors so it is important to have well designed well-constructed access and viewing areas that are both safe and visibly pleasing.

‘While being completed at a relatively modest cost, we are grateful to Coast West for supporting the project. It is also important that we ensure the coastal dunes are vegetated and protected from the growing number of people who access this part of the coast.’
