The Epping to Chatswood railway line was opened in 2009 at a cost of $2.3 billion. It appears that only four years later, the stairs adjacent to the escalators are no-longer useable due to efflorescence, and are barricaded off.
Estimated demolition/ replacement cost of stairs: $110,000.00
Estimated cost of Efflock for the entire twin flight of 75 steps: $320.00
As you can see, Efflock provides very economical protection. The water based formula is a green choice as it is a high concentrate, meaning less plastic waste. But best of all, Efflock ensures the intended service life of carbon hungry building materials - rather than bringing in jackhammers only four years later!
