Footbridge Expansion Joints

Footbridge joints have similar requirements as road bridge joints; with the further complications of providing a smooth transition across the pathway whist minimising the risk of heal entrapment, skid resistance, vandal proofing and cover plate security.

Consideration to long-term durability is also important as access for any routine maintenance might be difficult owing to the possible remote location, lack of road maintenance vehicle access and the need to maintain pedestrian rights of way to the likes of hospitals, schools, and shopping centres.
