Temporary footbridge gives safe access at Durleigh Reservoir

HAKI Bridge System - Wessex Water

Our client Wessex Water required easy access from Durleigh Reservoir to site offices, in the form of a temporary footbridge over a busy road. The solution needed to be robust enough to withstand footfall and environmental conditions for two years.

Engineering concepts

HAKI’s engineering team worked with Wessex Water to determine a solution and provide concept drawings, which used the HAKI Bridge System (HBS) and two 6-meter-high twin flight stair towers to either side.

On-site support

The client sub-contracted the erection of the access solution to Pen Mill Scaffolding and HAKI’s team of experienced technicians provided technical on-site support to ensure the erection was as efficient and safe as possible. 

Quick, efficient installation

A team of four scaffolders built the first stair tower in six hours and the second stair in the same time using three men, despite poor weather conditions. The temporary bridge build then took a further two hours.

Once built, the temporary bridge structure was rigged to a crane within one hour and installed over the road with just six minutes of possession time. 

Could we please extend our thanks to you and your team for the professional installation of our pedestrian bridge. From the initial order and design process, to the final install, every step ws met with a swift and considered response.

Myself and Wessex Water as a company are very happy with the quality and install of the bridge, especially the attention to detail and aftercare following the initial purchase.”
