Project Completion – Derby Cable Suspension Bridge

Cable Suspension Bridge Dorset 5

Moodie Outdoor Products has recently completed the installation of a 63m clear span Cable Suspension Bridge for Dorset Council in Tasmania.

The bridge forms part of the BlueDerby mountain bike trails…the largest network of mountain bike trails currently in Australia. The bridge is just under 2m wide allowing for bike riders and pedestrians to easily pass each other by on the bridge.

All fabrication works for the bridge are completed in the factory and shipped to site. Fully engineered bridge abutments are installed before the bridge components are shipped to site. From there it is a matter of erecting the main portals and installing the main support cable from one side to the other. Once that is complete the bridge is constructed from one side to the other.

All steel work is galvanised and the bridge deck is installed using FRP mesh product.

As you can see from the pictures the bridge is functional and does not detract from the natural beauty of the surrounding environment!

Project Completion: Pedestrian Bridge Installation

3rd Settlement Reserve Bridge Finished

Moodie Outdoor Products has recently completed the installation of a pedestrian bridge for Parramatta City Council at 3rd Settlement Reserve.

3rdSettlementBridgeC

The bridge came in pre-fabricated kit form from Outside Products. Measuring a total length of 14m the bridge was delivered in kit form. Requiring 1 day worth of construction the bridge was then craned into place and bolted down.

3rdSettlementBridgeB

Once the bridge was placed, the decking boards and balustrade were then installed over a 2 day period. Roocycle  decking was selected as the decking board of choice as it provides a long lasting zero maintenance solution that is also slip rated to Australian Standards.

3rdSettlementBridgeA

The pedestrian bridge has been fully engineer approved and has been designed to withstand flood conditions. To comply to the flood loading the bridge was designed with collapsible balustrades so that in the event of a flood the total load on the bridge and its abutments is reduced.
