This was an unusual project for us which drew on a design used constructing footpath bridges for Somerset District council many years ago. The customer required a simple footbridge over a 7m wide section of river he owns near Whitchurch. Despite leaking waders we enjoyed the challenge and the customer was very pleased with the result. The basic design consisted of telegraph poles set 1200mm apart on sleeper bearers clad with 150mm by 50mm decking with weldmesh on top to prevent slipping. This is probably a good example of applying our skills to something a little different.
