Cable-stayed steel bridge wins awards
The Jack Pesch Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge is a three-span cable-stayed structure providing access across the Brisbane River between Indooroopilly on the north bank and Chelmer on the south bank. The Queensland Department of Main Roads and the Brisbane City Council jointly funded the project, which is an important link in the developing network of bikeways throughout Brisbane. Moggill Constructions Pty Ltd successfully tendered the bridge on a design and construct basis, to a design by Kinhill Pty Ltd.
It is the longest-span cable-stayed bridge in Queensland and has recently won a High Commendation Award in The Institution of Engineers, Australia (Queensland Division) Engineering Excellence Awards, and the Australian Institute of Steel Construction, Structural Engineering Steel Design Awards.
