Perth, Western Australia: Artificial foot treads are being installed on artificial turf in the Perth Park area.
The installation is expected to be completed in late 2018.
The foot tread has been in place since October 2016 and will be used to simulate foot pressure.
It is expected that this will allow the artificial turf to remain in place over longer periods of time.
The Australian Institute of Water Engineers (AUI) is the contractor on the project.
“It’s been a long-time coming and it’s been great to be part of it,” said Paul Houghton from the AUI.
AUI is the world’s largest environmental engineering organisation. “
A lot of work went into getting it right.”

“There are a lot of ways to work around it,” Mr Houghson said.
“We are not at the point where we can do everything.”
We have done some of the initial research but the main thing is to get the foot to behave as it is supposed to and to get it in a reasonable position.
“The artificial foot tread will be placed in an area near the footwalk at the footbridge.
It will be the first foot tread installation to be put in the park since the project was announced in April 2018.
