Caboolture River Steel Bridge

January 1, 2015

Steel bridge in the Sunshine State

Durable structural steel provided the answer for Caboolture Shire Council in the design of a new pedestrian/bikeway bridge over the Caboolture River. Caboolture Shire is one of Australia’s fastest-growing regions and rapid population growth has created demand for new transport infrastructure. 

The trussed steel bridge deck and tubular steel A-frame tower solution met the essential criteria of: lightweight construction; economy (in particular, the long-spanning ability of steel minimised costly pier construction in water); aesthetics; minimisation of on-site work; and erection from the bank.
