Hepburn Springs Pedestrian Bridge, VIC
As a relatively new company, Teleo Design was engaged by Hepburn Council to design and construct a new pedestrian bridge at the Mineral Springs reserve to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Hepburn's Mineral Spring’s Reserve. The project was awarded at Christmas 2014.
Teleo undertook the design of the 32m span bridge with approvals received early January. Teleo designed the bridge to be constructed as a single weldment with the decking and handrailing installed prior to shipment.
Fabrication was started as the contractors came back from their Christmas break. Manufacture was completed in Kempsey on the mid North coast of NSW while the footings were being constructed on site in Victoria.
Delivery of the finished bridge took 4 days from the fabricators shop to site. A minor delay on the day meant the bridge needed to arrive after school zones restrictions. The bridge was bolted into place before lunch on 11th March and opened at the 150th anniversary celebrations on 28th March 2015.
