Project Location— Nepean River Penrith, NSW
Project Client— Roads and Maritime Services
The Yandhai Nepean Crossing in NSW has an overall length of 284m and connects Punt Road and Memorial Avenue over the Nepean River.
The project is part of the broader plan to improve the existing dual-use path network in the area with the provision of an additional 418m of shared pedestrian and cycle route connecting new footpaths into existing networks traversing private properties and Council land. The bridge’s main span over the Nepean River is 200m long and has been designed as a triangular steel Warren truss with curved steel-concrete composite box approach spans. It is one of the longest single clear span footbridges in Australia and includes viewing platforms and balconies along the structure.
On this project BG&E worked in partnership with RMS (Road and Marine Services NSW) and their urban designer to provide the detailed design and documentation for all the structural and civil works involved in the project, including the geotechnical investigation and the design of the existing lighting and utility services relocation enabling works.
