Annual maintenance starts for timber boardwalks and footbridges

It’s time to give some of our Redlands Coast timber boardwalks and footbridges a spit and polish.

Redland City Council officers will start cleaning these assets on Monday 17 May 2021, ready for maintenance.

Once cleaned, timber preservative will be applied to the appropriate parts to keep them in tip-top condition.

More than 2km of boardwalks and footbridges will be treated, with each being closed temporarily while the work is undertake and for up to five days afterwards, while the product dries.
