Findon Road Underpass Bridge

BluBuilt was engaged to design and construct a replacement footbridge beneath busy Findon Road, as part of the City of Charles Sturt’s ongoing program to upgrade this important link in the regionally significant River Torrens Linear Park.

Scope

  • Complete footbridge design -demolition of existing bridge
  • Construction of new 3 metre wide bridge including piling works and substructure works
  • Fabrication and installation of a 32 metre long superstructure complete with environmentally friendly recycled plastic decking
  • Widening of approach paths
  • Public lighting upgrade
  • Retaining wall construction
  • Installation of pedestrian and cyclist barriers to improve safety aspects of this section of the Linear Park trail

Challenges

This project required considerable pedestrian traffic management over an extended period, along with environmental management due to the immediate proximity of the River Torrens and restricted access to site.
