Tumbi Creek Cycleway
“Speed meets sensitivity: replacing a popular community link at Lake Tuggerah”
Wyong Shire Council
Scope of Work
The old timber footbridge spanning Tumbi Creek at Berkeley Vale on the NSW Central Coast had had its day. No longer compliant with the latest safety codes and environmental requirements, Wyong Shire Council looked to Fleetwood for a cost efficient and attractive solution that was also highly sensitive to the local habitat. We delivered, using our Stirling™ Cable Stayed Bridge System which was pre-assembled off-site and then installed in just 24 hours.
Given the substantial structure required to span Tumbi Creek - 50 metres long, 3.5 metres wide – a cable stayed bridge was the obvious solution. Having successfully delivered the Stirling™ Cable Stayed Pedestrian Bridge many times, we were confident it was the attractive, yet robust structure required. Council agreed and, guided by our DesignExecute2™ process, the bridge was then completely designed, manufactured & installed by Fleetwood. To minimise any damage to the sensitive site ecology, all bridge components were fabricated off-site in our factory, before the bridge was smoothly assembled in just 24 hours using a 250-tonne crane. To complete the project Fleetwood was also responsible for the approaching boardwalks, balustrade, sandstone rock walls and landscaping works.
What sets Fleetwood Urban apart is the overall value for money-the product and the price combined. They do both very well.
