The 1.2km. cycling bridge connects the new 1500 car park space to the existing long term car park and provides spill parking for the up to 10,000 cyclists who convene on the cycle track every weekend. The design language of the airport – tensile fabric and lightweight roof’s is utilized to create a bike friendly barrier free space that reminds users of the adjacency to the airport. Working with Aurecon Engineers and L 49 landscape design the track is flood lit with solar powered lights with care taken to ensure that no lost airlines are tempted to land on the track.
