The Baakens Valley Pedestrian bridge is an iconic structure in Port Elizabeth. As part of the Mandela Bay Development Agency’s plan for the precinct, the bridge is a key part of rejuvenating the area.

By extending and connecting the inner city to the Baakens Valley, the bridge plays a crucial part in creating a world class precinct for the community.

The iconic structure is a composite design that makes extensive use of circular hollow sections.
