If you enjoy the peacefulness of looking out to sea, why not enjoy the new Sellicks Beach esplanade foreshore upgrade, opposite Palmerstone Avenue.
The City of Onkaparinga engaged Roadside Services and Solutions South Australia civil works team to upgrade the Sellicks Beach cliff top access.
The team constructed a viewing platform where previously there was nothing other than a bench seat.
The platform will help preserve the ground and stop any landslips, making it safer for people to go to this site and enjoy the view from the new concrete viewing platform.
There is also the added comfort of a picnic table and bench seats.
Roadside Services and Solutions chose APR’s Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) materials for the decking.
Roadside Services and Solutions Managing Director Craig Woods says this sustainable choice supports the use of recycled and reclaimed materials diverting 1944kg from landfill.
“While maintaining the strength of the decking structure, WPC materials have high resistance capabilities against weather and water, which lead to a low tendency of maintenance.”
The works were conducted using Roadside’s highly expert team of professionals beginning with the project start meeting through to the various stages of the civil works, finishing with the concrete pour.
The lookout area forms part of the Sellicks Beach Cliff Top Access Project which also involves the installation of 1.2km of path, a vegetation barrier and hazard signage.
As part of council’s ongoing safety inspections, the lookout fencing was also upgraded to become compliant with current standards. The fencing also uses recycled materials.
City of Onkaparinga Council built and installed a similar platform at the Esplanade, opposite Gulfview Road at Christies Beach in South Australia.
