Cycle Trail Swing Bridge

“I was surprised that the price of FRP was not significantly more than timber decking. There are savings in installation costs and FRP removes the need for plastic or steel mesh. Factoring in lower maintenance costs and excellent skid resistance, FRP is our preferred product for cycle trail bridge decks.”

We worked with the Nelson Tasman Cycle Trail Trust to improve the decking on a swing bridge over the Wai-iti River near Wakefield. Our FRP mini mesh grating replaced the existing timber decking to provide a safer and more long-term solution. With its anti-slip grit surface, our mini mesh improved the slip resistance for cyclists and pedestrians. It will not rot or warp from moisture exposure, making it more durable and safe for cycling bridges in damp areas.
