How Long Park Pedestrian Bridge

Development Type: 

ProposalDescription: 

The eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality has proposed constructing a pedestrian bridge across the Sipingo River, between How Long Place and 109409 Street. The proposed site falls within Umlazi, in Ward 86 of the eThekwini Municipality. The bridge will be constructed downstream and parallel to existing pipelines.

Expanded_Motivation: 

Presently, poor accessibility leads residents to use the pipeline to cross the Sipingo River between Umlazi U and Umlazi Q. However, using these channels for accessibility has presented health and safety challenges for the local community. Community members stated that criminal acts often occur as they don’t have quick access at the river crossing. Also, the pipes are slippery and degraded, making it challenging for residents to cross the river safely. Hence, the eThekwini Municipality proposes constructing the How Long Park pedestrian bridge to provide safe passage for residents to cross the Sipingo River. The structure will be a three-span conventional U-Beam bridge, supported by abutments and piers. Each pier base will be secured into bedrock using four (4) Y32 rock anchors and epoxy approved by the engineers. If required, the abutments will be supported with dump rock or cement stabilising material. The deck will be 3.8m above the Sipingo River, 2.6m wide and 50m long, with two 6m approaches on either side.
