Waiwhakaiho Pedestrian Bridge

The finished bridge has become an iconic landmark and has been awarded a gold prize for Natural Projects and Community Sustainability in the International Liveable Communities Awards.

Resene Paints and the Waiwhakaiho Pedestrian Bridge

The New Plymouth Coastal Walkway meanders over 10kms along the coastline, offering something for walkers, rollerbladers, cyclists or runners. The Waiwhakaiho Pedestrian Bridge spanning just under 70 metres in length links the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway to the north.

To achieve the desired finish the bridge was abrasive blasted, zinc metal sprayed and then finished with an Altex Coatings system of Carboguard 504, followed by a build coat of Carboguard 636 and a finish coat of E~Line 379 to keep it well protected against the corrosive coastal Taranaki environment.

The finished bridge has become an iconic landmark and has been awarded a gold prize for Natural Projects and Community Sustainability in the International Liveable Communities Awards.
