Winner of Category 4 (Projects $30 million to $75 million) in the 2015 SA Earth Awards is the RIVERBANK PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE
McConnell Dowell Constructors (Aust) Pty Ltd
Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI)
The Riverbank Bridge is an iconic structure that provides a linkage between the Adelaide Oval, the railway station and the heart of Adelaide, involving construction of a post tensioned, curved concrete structure that is faced in over 3000 glass panels, almost all of them different. The project presented McConnell Dowell and its partners with a difficult and complex task, made even more challenging by construction over water around significant trees and to immovable deadlines. The fact that the Adelaide Community has wholeheartedly embraced the bridge is testament to the success of the project as a whole.
