One of our Facebook About Waterlooville followers (a “Metal Powder Coatings” specialist) got in touch contact with us regarding the new Waterlooville Ramp, which opened to the public in October this year.
The new ramp, despite being less than a month old, is already rusting.
Yes! You heard it right – it’s rusting – despite the driest September since records began – the ramp is already turning an unsightly shade of … rust.
As you can see from the photographs below the rust is breaking out all over the structure and not just at the load bearing or connection points.
If this is what the structure looks like after a month, what will it look like after a year, 5 years, 10 years?
Is it time to rename the new Sainbury’s Ramp, Rustbury’s Ramp?
