engineered to protect, built to endure

South Bank Hydraulic Bridge

As the South Bank marina redevelopment in Providenciales,
Turks and Caicos, moves on apace, COASTAL were contracted to design, develop and install a hydraulic swing bridge system, to create a simple connection of two major areas of the development, spanning an access canal to other properties.

The configuration included:
  • the establishment of two shore abutments, using DIP piles, rebar support frames and casting.
  • A hydraulic swing pivot. 
  • A prefabricated truss bridge, with timber slatted floor.
  • A control system which can be operated by remote control.
  • The bridge should be capable of handling ‘golf cart’ traffic.

The original design by Sam Verity was engineered in the US and installed by COASTAL to Sam’s specifications.

This user friendly mechanism, constructed at the ‘crossroads’ of the main Southbank development, allows water and onshore traffic to coexist, while further establishing the Marina’s original vision.
