Kingsway to the Casino
Consulting engineer Connell Wagner didn’t gamble when choosing composite steel construction for access ramps to Melbourne’s Crown Casino carpark facilities. To make entry to Melbourne’s Crown Casino carpark considerably easier for patrons, two new bridge ramps were constructed from the old Kingsway Viaduct.
Composite steel girders were used for the superstructure of the bridges, which were successfully constructed on time and on budget. The new bridges match the form of construction of the existing Viaduct and improve its overall appearance through the superior detailing of the girders. The use of steel enabled savings in foundation costs and allowed fast, economical construction of this complex structure in a congested site.
