During 2016 the Victorian Government spent approximately $4 million on the construction of an underpass to connect a popular surf beach to the car park on Great Ocean Road.
Thousands of cars and buses pass the beach each day over summer making it a significant road safety issue. The construction of the underpass which is 30 metres long & 3 metres wide has made it safer for everyone accessing the beach including the children participating in the Surf Life Saving nippers program.
Moddex worked with JS Welding & Fabrication to supply disability handrail and commercial balustrade for the underpass.
Products/configurations used on project
- Disability Handrail AR160
- Commercial Balustrade CB10, CB50 & CB55
Why was Moddex product selected?
Moddex supplied various configurations of Conectabal Balustrade and Assistrail Disability Handrails designed to maximise access & help prevent injuries or falls from retaining walls and elevated areas.
Constructed from hot dip galvanised steel and powder coated, the unique modular design provides maximum strength, cost efficiency and longevity. The flexibility of the Moddex system also meant that tight deadlines could be accommodated.
