Townsville City Council


April 2020 – September 2020


$1.7 million




The scope of work included:

  • establishment of a track to allow two-way pedestrian traffic including earthworks and rock works
  • installation of 1733 precast concrete steps and landings
  • construction of 3088m2 of geohex pavement
  • installation of peninsula shelter with C2 cyclone rating
  • supply and installation of recycled plastic park benches and bollards, and recycled park seats
  • installation of bin stand and bin
  • installation of a custom drinking fountain including supply and installation of associated water piping
  • installation of signage at lookout points, entrance and along the trail.


JMac developed a new methodology for installing the steps which eliminated manual handling risks and expedited the installation program, allowing a greater number of steps able to be installed per day. This led to the extension of JMac’s works to include an additional two stages of works, within the original timeframe.

With a proactive approach to safety and the protection of the local environment during works, JMac safely executed the works with minimal disturbance to the surrounding natural bushland despite the tight project footprint.
