Winnererremy Bay is a beautiful inlet on Sydney’s Northern Beaches peninsula. Situated just off the southern end of Pittwater, it boasts lush parklands, beautiful native reserve and idyllic scenery.
Originally, access to the bay and surrounding parkland was limited, but by 2003, it had greatly improved, so the park was attracting more and more visitors. This prompted an upgrade by Council, which included a pedestrian/cycleway bridge to link the foreshore walking track, on one side of the creek, to the playground and recreation area, on the other. (Prior to the upgrade, park visitors had to walk 600m to a road bridge crossing.)
Fleetwood was contracted to design, manufacture and install this bridge. Our solution? A graceful 48m arch, located at the mouth of Cahill Creek. The arch is formed by a precast concrete superstructure, with a concrete deck, stainless steel childproof balustrading and a timber handrail, all founded on driven, double-treated hardwood piles.
We managed and executed the entire project. From design sketches, CAD drawings, plans, precasting and balustrade fabrication, right through to driving the piles, then installing the bridge by crane.
The project was designed and executed within the client’s budget and time constraints - a clear testament to our ability to deliver large scale, complex projects to the public domain.
