Project completion: Fully enclosed FRP pedestrian bridge, Erina, NSW

Fully enclosed FRP pedestrian bridge providing fully secure access between shopping centre and adjacent enclosed structure.

Moodie Outdoor Products has recently completed the supply and installation of a fully enclosed FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Polymer) pedestrian bridge in Erina, NSW. The single span bridge is 9m long, 2m wide, 2.5m high enclosed roof, and engineered to 4kPa.

Moodie Outdoor Products has recently completed the supply and installation of an FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Polymer) pedestrian bridge in Erina, NSW. The single span bridge is 9m long with 2.5m clear width between handrails, and engineered to 4kPa.

Bridge was entirely constructed from FRP components and floor panels. SecureMax mesh added to internal walls.

The bridge was assembled on site from a flat-pack, and then craned into position. SecureMax mesh panels were installed for maximum protection of pedestrians.

Installation was conducted at night after the shopping centre had closed and utilised a large crane to lift the FRP bridge into position.

In this article, we look at the benefits of working with FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Polymer) and possible applications in outdoor infrastructure products.

Safety and maintenance

FRP members are extremely strong and have a long history of use in public infrastructure. The material doesn’t suffer fatigue or corrosion effects leading to a long life-span. These aspects contribute to a high engineering safety level.

FRP has a reputation for low maintenance costs, an important consideration over the life-time of a public infrastructure installation. FRP is not affected by UV radiation, temperature changes, or marine environments. FRP has vandal resistant qualities as well.


FRP products can be assembled on-site or arrive factory assembled. FRP members are easily drilled and normal hardware can be used to connect members together. FRP is light-weight which may lead to other cost savings in terms of site preparation. FRP is also a good sustainable material to choose.

Applications in public infrastructure projects

Moodie Outdoor Products has delivered custom projects solely in FRP, as well as integrating FRP with recycled plastic and traditional materials. Our capabilities cover:

Pedestrian and bicycle bridges

Pedestrian access ramps


Boat ramps

Project completion – custom walkway to bridge connection

Moodie Outdoor Products successfully designed and installed a custom walkway and bridge connection in Granville, NSW. Walkway was constructed using Roocycle recycled plastic as bearers, and FRP for the joists and decking.

Custom walkway made from Roocycle recycled plastic bearers and FRP joists and decks with cycle rails.

The site was challenging being situated alongside a storm water channel. The soil was loose fill and required screw pier foundations down to as much as 6 metres to meet engineers specifications. The bicycle compliant rail was a Moddex galvanised steel BS45 bike rail balustrade.
