Turf Protection tested by 400,000 pilgrims

Over 400,000 pilgrims from 170 Nations, converged on Royal Randwick Racecourse for the World Youth Day's final event with music and dancing well into the early hours of the morning, along with a candlelight vigil on Saturday 19th and the final Mass celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI being held on Sunday 20th. Royal Randwick Racecourse experienced for the first time ever, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims camping out overnight in tents, sleeping bags and tarpaulins for this two day event.

Turf Protection for the event was supplied by Jayline Aust to protect five grass tracks at Sydney's Major Horse Racing venue with the following products:
  • Terraplas Turf Protection - for all heavy duty and roadway access
  • Portapath Turf Protection - for all other coverage
Even with this many people the turf protection products performed brilliantly!

Jayline's vast International Project Management experience in major International Events, (2 x Olympic Games, 3 x Commonwealth Games and 1 x ICC World Cup Cricket), enabled the company to pull together a team of trades and services to successfully complete the installation and removal of Turf Protection product at Royal Randwick Racecourse.
