Stonington City Council, in Victoria, has funded a ground breaking project that will increase habitat connectivity, improve water quality and provide recreational and educational opportunities.
Through clever environmental design the ‘Lower Yarra River Biodiversity Linkages Project’ uses materials obtained through sustainable or recyclable sources. An elevated Enduroplank™ boardwalk with a composite fibre sub-structure, which was designed and constructed by Replas, allows users to experience views of the wetlands and the river. The location is further enhanced by a selection of picnic settings and benches all made from 100% Australian recycled plastic.
‘Enduroplank™ is easy to install due to the consistency of the boards and due to them covering a fair bit of territory by being 195 mm wide.’ Ken Snow, Director, Snow Homes – Installer.
