Centennial Parklands – Lachlan Swamp Boardwalk Upgrade Works

Project Overview: The Lachlan Swamp Boardwalk Removal and Replacement project was undertaken to replace the deteriorating boardwalk in Lachlan Swamp at Centennial Parklands. The old boardwalk was posing a hazard to users, and there was a need to preserve existing flora. The new boardwalk was designed with less interference to the existing flying fox habitat and included a new lookout to view the canopies with the current flying foxes.

Project Components:

  • Removal of the existing timber boardwalk.
  • Installation of new screw piles.
  • Construction of a new boardwalk with Fibre-Reinforced Plastic (FRP) materials.
  • Intricate design with curved radiuses for custom made balustrades.

Key Challenges and Risks:

  • Working in a sensitive environment, which included the flying fox nesting season required careful planning and coordination to minimize any disturbances to the ecosystem.
  • Working in a high-water table environment, which required the use of specialised equipment and techniques to prevent any damage to the swamp and its flora.
  • Protecting trees and their root systems while screw piling, which required careful monitoring and communication with the client and other stakeholders.
  • Designing and constructing curved radiuses for balustrades, which required customised solutions and close attention to detail to ensure compliance with quality, safety and environmental standards.
