Magnetic Island Walkway protected against salt corrosion

Magnetic Island Walkway protected against salt corrosion

Emesh was used by the Townsville City Council for 3,500m2 of combined pathway on Magnetic Island connecting the “X base resort” to Nelly Bay.

As the pathway is located adjacent to the beach it will be subjected to a continuously high salt environment. With polymer joints and dowels, the pavement has no elements that can corrode – resulting in significantly lower maintenance and whole of life costs.

The project was completed on time with a quality finished and crack free pavement.

By using Emesh the CO2 footprint of the pavement was reduced by over 35 tons. The dosage rate was 4kg/m3 with a 100mm slab and 32MPa concrete, 3metres wide, saw cuts at 3 to 4 metres and Danley K-Form at 18 Meters.
