Project Description

Macintosh Island Bridge, Surfers Paradise

The Gold Coast City Council engaged us to carry out the honed concrete works for the new Macintosh Island pedestrian bridge. The walkway surface for the Gold Coast bridge was honed back to expose full stone/aggregate, and finished at an 60/80 grit, before a concrete sealer/densifier was applied.

The honed concrete provided a very attractive looking concrete finishing, and also provides a safe slip resistant surface. As the walkway is a high pedestrian traffic area and is open and exposed to the weather, slip resistance was incredibly important. The penetrating sealer/densifier that was applied upon completion of the honing works will protect the surface from staining, and also helped to harden the surface of the concrete.
