Hindmarsh Island Bridge: a showpiece for composite bridge design
Hindmarsh Island Bridge is an incrementally launched composite structure of fabricated steel girders, Infrabuild Steel Centre (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel Metalcentre) structurals, and concrete deck, with 10 spans totalling 319m in length.
The spans vary from 28m to 33m. The bridge is curved in plan and partially curved in elevation, with a curved centre section linking approach grades of eight per cent. Navigation clearance at the two central spans is 24m wide and 14m high.
