Problem

The thin plastic decking was unsuitable for its intended use:

  • Substandard material – lack of durability
  • Covers had become warped and bent as a result of rainwater saturation
  • Major health and safety hazard – entire trench area cordoned off, covers considered unsafe for pedestrians
  • Lifting from the knees – unnecessary strain placed on the lower back due to the design of the covers
The existing covers had become a major health and safety hazard, with covers considered unsafe for pedestrians
