Recycling trial continues for Lake Mac roads

Fishery Point Road in Bonnells Bay is the first public road in Lake Macquarie that has been resurfaced with Reconophalt – a road-pavement alternative that uses processed soft plastics.


The cutting-edge product, developed at Downer’s asphalt plant in Teralba, uses processed soft plastics such as shopping bags and chip wrappers to act as a ‘glue’ that bonds and waterproof roads.
