Pedestrian Bridges



Pedestrian bridges are often the centerpiece of a trail or development, hence aesthetics are often important considerations as well as structural integrity in their design and construction.  

  • Parks agencies wish to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for their visitors
  • Residential developers wish to create cost-effective pathways through their developments
  • Local governments wish to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for their residents
  • Individual landowners wish to provide cost-effective crossings for themselves and their families

Whatever your needs, Roseke Engineering Ltd. can provide you with the knowledge, expertise and cost effective design services to ensure your pedestrian bridge is safe and performs its necessary function.  We have designed pedestrian bridges for all levels of government ranging from Parks Canada down to provincial parks and local landowners.

Our services encompass the entire project life cycle of a pedestrian bridge project, from inspection and assessment through planning and construction.

  • Bridge Inspections
  • Bridge Planning and Assessment
  • Preliminary Engineering and Alternatives Analysis
  • Environmental Studies (fish, wildlife, etc.)
  • Detailed Design
  • Right-of-Way Acquisition
  • Environmental permit applications
  • Tender Preparation
  • Construction Supervision

We are often the prime consultant for pedestrian projects for government agencies.  Hence, our clients expect good project management over and above the requisite technical knowledge of bridge design and construction.
