The project involved the construction of a 2m wide coastal walkway from Cape Banks Road through the NSW Golf Course to Kamay Botany Bay National Park. The walkway consists of 280m of coloured concrete footpaths and 130m of elevated boardwalks. Although site was located in an environmentally sensitive marsh land within a National Park, the boardwalk was constructed with minimal impact to ecological environments.

The scope of works included
To complete works with minimal damage to the environment works stayed strictly within working corridors of the platform and the number of workers onsite was kept to a minimum. Another key component was the abutment ramps that were
constructed at either end of the walkway. These ramps acted as a pleasant transition from the concrete footpath to elevated timber deck. The abutments were specially designed to withstand the various dynamic and static loads produced from
the timber deck and golf carts. The scope included; an array of drainage networks to collect and distribute water effectively, installation of 580 one metre long sandstone logs along the footpath and 1,800 square meters of landscaping.
The project was successfully completed on time and to a high standard for our client. Stakeholders have also been providing positive feedback since the completion of works. One of the aesthetic highlights of the coastal walkway is the sandstone cladding and
capping that is used on the retaining wall.
