Design and construction of a 525m pedestrian bridge stretching from Birrarung Marr Park to the MCG.The bridge spans Batman Avenue & Brunton Avenue. Key challenges included building across fifteen electrified rail lines, two tram-lines, two roads and connecting to two high profile parklands. The bridge consists of sections of concrete slab on ground, piled concrete slabs,T-Roff beams, Super Tee beams, single cell steel box girders, twin cell steel box girders and steel trusses.
The steel truss section comprises one span of 46m and another of 54.3m. This was launched over the rail lines to minimise disruption to the rail corridor.
John Callanan was the site survey manager completing all bridge, earthwork and road set out for the project.
