Tuckers Creek Pedestrian Bridge, Mooloolaba

Stage 1 of the Tuckers Creek Bridge project has recently been constructed on the Brisbane Road approach to Mooloolaba. Gerard Canavan was responsible for the pedestrian bridge component of the overall bridge design. This included design of a multiple function handrail for pedestrian and cyclists safety incorporating the use of thin metal fins to provide a sculptural yet lightweight outer edge emphasizing the vista into the creek.  Feature lighting elements were included to reduce bridge lighting elements the pedestrian scale and further contribute to the sculptural feel of the pedestrian bridge element.

Gerard Canavan was project leader on this project, during his time with Deicke Richards Brisbane based design firm.
