Kingerby Bridge

The Project

Project Aim and Challenges

Lincolnshire County Council contacted POLYdeck’s technical sales team to discuss the potential replacement of an existing footbridge constructed from a combination of structural steel beams and timber decking which had deteriorated over the years and was now not fit for purpose.

POLYdeck™ initially surveyed the site to ascertain all site measurements and abutment requirements prior to providing design calculations and general arrangement drawings for approval. It is key to our supply chain that POLYdeck™ are able to carry out all calculations, GA drawings and installation if required.

Any new structure had to be designed to accommodate a 10KN point loading for equestrian use and incorporate a 1.8m high parapet handrail as per the British Horse Society requirement. The colour chosen was dark brown to blend in to the surroundings.

Given the remote location of the bridge, the lightweight GRP structure ensured a speedy installation with the removal of the existing bridge and installation of the POLYbridge™ being executed within two days.
