Students at Federation University in Ballarat, Victoria now have access to two innovative structures made from recycled plastic and composite fibre. Officially opened by Dr Paul Fleming the structures incorporate an access bridge and a disability ramp.

Dale Boucher, Sustainability Officer, Federation University, said, ‘The new pedestrian bridge and walkway is a good example of product lifecycle. We send our recycled waste away and we accept recycled waste back in the form of a finished product’.
