Otara Creek Bridge & associated approach paths
Otara Creek Reserve, Otara
Client: Auckland Council
Designer: Frame Group (interpreting the artistic design of Moko-Ia Creative House
Completed: February 2020
This bridge replaced an existing bridge well passed it's use by date and also upgraded the approach paths in the Otara Creek reserve. The bridge was designed as an enhancement to the whole area; being curved in both plan and elevation and carrying large decorative Manaia posts and colourful plates. The deck and side skirts were constructed from diagonal patterns of both Greenheart and Purpleheart timber.
It projects a playful and prominent structure that stands boldly in place over the creek. Attention to detail was vital on this project with the finish on the artistic features being paramount to the overall success of this bridge.
The bridge is an artistic bridge with many features that require the very high level of quality that Fort Projects has a reputation for.
