Severe Coastal Pedestrian Bridges

Moodie Outdoor Products has recently completed the installation of 3 Pedestrian Bridges that were required to link up concrete paths at Sanctuary Point, NSW in a severe coastal environment.

Lengths varied between 7 & 9m’s and were all 2.5m’s long with clear width of 2.2m’s between cycle rails. Due to being severe coastal selection of materials was crucial to provide a durable low maintenance solution. The bridges were constructed using the following:

  • Beams – 475x225mm FRP single span beams
  • Decking – FRP micro mesh 30mm
  • Balustrade  – Roocycle ET posts and top rail, PC aluminium pool fence style balustrade between posts.

Roocycle Bridge for Taronga Zoo

Moodie Outdoor Products recently completed the supply and installation of a small Pedestrian Bridge in the rain forest bird aviary at Taronga Park Zoo. The existing timber bridge was dilapidated and slippery as it was in the rain forest environment.

Original timber bridge had reached end of life

The 3.2m long x 2.1m wide timber bridge was replaced with Roocycle ET structure and handrail with Roocycle EN 150×50 decking boards treated with Traction Sealer to achieve P5 slip rating. Also installed was the stainless steel cable balustrade.

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 – Roocycle Pedestrian Bridge

Roocycle Bridge 4m x 1.2m Vantage 1

Moodie Outdoor Products has recently completed the installation of two small pedestrian bridges at a new development in Mooloolaba, QLD. The bridges each measure 4m x 1.2m. The bridges were constructed entirely from recycled plastic composite materials. The Roocycle material was selected for its durability and the fact that it requires zero ongoing maintenance.

Roocycle Pedestrian Bridge

Roocycle Pedestrian Bridge Bella Vista 1

Moodie Outdoor Products recently completed the installation of a Roocycle Pedestrian Bridge. The bridge spans a small creek bed that is subject to flooding. As such, the whole structure has been engineer certified to cope with flood loading.

Roocycle is the perfect choice for such a project as the material does not absorb water and will never rot. This project consumed 4.8 tonnes of Roocycle material that would otherwise have been destined for landfill.

Cro$$ing the Creek

Cable Bridge 5Kpa 40+66+20 Wodoga

What is the cheapest way to cross a large creek/river? The answer is with Cable Bridges. Moodie Outdoor Products has installed a number of Cable Bridges over the years. These pedestrian bridges are the cheapest way to “clear span” a distance of 20m and above.

Cable Bridge Lite 3Kpa Mt Beauty

The suspension bridge or commonly known as “swing bridges”, are a time-honoured way of crossing waterways and service communities throughout the world. We have taken what is a very old concept of footbridge design and developed it using modern long lasting materials that comply with today’s demands. Our bridges are factory prefabricated and erected in usually 7-14 days.

Bridge design is fraught with conflicting demands such as budget, regulatory authority requirements, maintenance aspects, aesthetics, site conditions and choices of materials used. We are well placed to help guide you through all the issues confronting your pro-posed bridge project and help you towards a successful outcome.
