Construction on pedestrian and cycle steel bridge at North Ryde underway
By Tom O'Sullivan on 24 October 2018
Construction is underway on a $40 million landmark steel bridge project for pedestrians and cyclists that will soon traverse Delhi Road and the Hill M2 motorway at North Ryde.
The revolutionary bridge project aims to provide safe and easy access to Landcom’s Lachlan’s Line development, North Ryde Railway Station and Macquarie Park.
Marking a new approach to advanced steel manufacturing, the 160-m long bridge is one of the first of its kind in the world, which twists and contorts to achieve the desired form and its design requiring innovative fabrication and construction methods.
With Western Sydney-based steel fabricator S&L Steel, a design and construct contract had been awarded to a joint venture between Arenco (NSW) and the Daracon Group at Beresfield, NSW. It is also expected that the construction will cause some disruption to motorists at various times due to temporary lane closures.
