Lightweight FRP Pedestrian Bridge with Service Ducts Inbuilt

0 Comments | May 20, 2021

Soon to be manufactured in Adelaide Australia, this lightweight FRP bridge was delivered to site and lifted into place using a crane truck with little effort by Lifespan Structures in the UK. Pre-fabricated offsite, the design incorporated service ducts which were encapsulated within the deck keeping clean lines and a very neat soffit. The new FRP structure replaces a steel and timber hybrid bridge, which had reached the end of its service life. The river environment had caused significant corrosion of the steel, and the timber elements were a regular maintenance issue for the client. Built to last more than 100 years and guaranteed for 50 years, FiberCore Infracore composite footbridges are rapidly becoming the product of choice for decision makers in the infrastructure sector. Kudos to the team at LifeSpan Structures UK & FiberCore Europe.
