In 1992 a boardwalk was built in the aviary at Queens Park, Ipswich. We did not supply the timber but processed it as instructed for another company and know it was of high quality. Unfortunately the design and construction practices did not match the material supplied.
Posts set in concrete had decayed severely and there was decay in the decking (probably initially a dressed face) under an anti slip paint. Further an improvised slat handrail did not allow good visibility and slopes were too steep for present disabled access requirements. Nothing of the original boardwalk could be salvaged.
