Elizabeth Quay Pedestrian Bridge situated on the Perth City Foreshore presented multiple engineering challenges drawing on the ingenuity,creativity and outside-of-the box thinking from the project team to deliver this iconic landmark project.
Located on the north shore of the Swan River, the Elizabeth Quay development is a $440m project delivered by the State Government designed to revitalise Perth and embrace one of the city’s best natural assets. Part of the development included the construction of a pedestrian and cyclist bridge, forming an iconic feature of Elizabeth Quay.
The $20m contract to build the unique bridge was awarded to the Decmil, SRG Limited and Hawkins Civil joint venture, operating as DASSH JV DASSH). DASSH were responsible for the construction of the 110m long, 20m high double arch, cable stay suspension bridge the first of its kind in Perth. The bridge provides a link from Williams Landing to the new island, reinstating the pedestrian and cyclist access from the Narrows Bridge to the Causeway.
Innovative structural engineering and detailed civil infrastructure works conducted by the DASSH team were integral to bringing this ambitious
architectural design to reality.
