Sutherland Shire Council, south of Sydney, recently used the Rocla PermaTrak concrete boardwalk system to enhance an urban park at Caringbah. The PermaTrak system was specified to minimize damage to exposed tree roots. The steel-reinforced concrete treads and bearers of the PermaTrak boardwalk system are supported on small concrete stumps that can be spaced at two- or three-metre intervals to suit site restrictions.
The council’s own construction contractors assembled the system. Although it was the first time they had used the system, the installation went smoothly.
