Lorraine Street Pedestrian Bridge, Strathfield, Sydney, NSW
Teleo was awarded the project to design and construct 3 pedestrian bridge over Powells Creek, North Strathfield.
The three new pedestrian and cycleway bridge crossings join sections of the Bay to Bay path improving access to Mason Park, Bressington Park and Ismay Reserve.
After being manufactured in Port Macquarie, the Lorraine Street bridge was delivered in 3 sections to site on Wednesday 22nd June 2022 and pieced together onsite. The complete bridge was then lifted by crane as one piece onto the prepared footings, on Thursday 23 June at 10am.
The installation was attended by Strathfield's Mayor, Matthew Blackmore and staff, along with Sydney Water and Transport NSW staff.
This project is funded by the NSW Government under the Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program to improve open space and active transport links along the Parramatta Road corridor.
The bridge design is ramped to be above the 1:300 year flood level and is 32m long by 3.5m wide with FRP decking system and modular handrailing. The installation included passing the bridge under the power lines and then lifting the complete bridge onto the footings.
The scope of supply includes constructing the approach paths and ramp.
AND while we were installing - our new bridge up in Dubbo was being assembled onsite on the same day - ready for installation.
