Grayston Pedestrian Bridge

The Grayston Pedestrian Bridge forms part of a pedestrian and cycling corridor built to connect residents of Alexandra Township to Sandton in Johannesburg. Previously separated by vehicle-centric infrastructure, the “Great Walk” project includes integrated bus rapid transit systems and provides unobstructed daily movement for the 10,000 people who make that journey via a 6m wide sidewalk and bicycle lane with a 289m long cable-stayed pedestrian bridge over the busy M1 freeway at Grayston Interchange.

“Overall, this was a challenging yet tremendously rewarding project. The completed bridge is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The fact that it serves such an important socio-economic purpose is fundamental to the sense of achievement the whole team gained from the work. As a company, Royal HaskoningDHV states its vision as ‘enhancing society’ – and we have certainly achieved that with the Grayston Pedestrian Bridge,” says Royal HaskoningDHV Senior Structural Engineer, Darryl Klassen.
