Snapper Point Boardwalk

Snapper Point Boardwalk

Onkaparinga, South Australia – In 2015, the timber boardwalk at Snapper Point was replaced with our NatureTREAD™ FRP boardwalk to address severe coastal erosion. The new elevated boardwalk and viewing platform were designed to withstand the harsh coastal environment and offer visitors a prime spot to enjoy the stunning views.

From the photos below, this NatureTREAD™ FRP installation has proven its durability, remaining resilient against coastal and environmental exposure. While there is the unavoidable occurrence of natural lightening of the colour, the surface finish remains intact. There are no exposed glass fibres, ensuring user safety. The structure remains sturdy and robust.

Project Challenges

  • Protection of the sand dunes.
  • Managing construction access in a remote area presented logistical and installation challenges.
  • The coastal environment posed a risk of corrosion, demanding materials that could withstand harsh environmental conditions.
