The Markgraaff Pedestrian Bridge in Bloemfontein is visible confirmation that steel can be used to create a unique and innovative structure that is functional and aesthetically pleasing, despite a limited budget. Combining technical expertise and creative thinking, the project team constructed a slender steel bridge of individual character, which displays standard sections, and complements its surrounding environment. Positioned at the gateway to the Bloemfontein CBD, the unbraced steel network arches of the 31 m long main span have become a point of proud reference for the client and the community alike.
