YEAR

PROJECT BRIEF

Structural design, documentation and construction administration

 

 

CHALLENGES

These suspension bridges span 107m and 70m and were designed to meet the client’s expectations of being safe but lively, and able to be simply and economically constructed in a remote location. The bridges have survived major flooding events (which exceeded the design flood level) with minimal damage.

RESULT

A worthy addition to a popular tourism precinct.
