Nerang River Pedestrian Bridge

Bonacci Infrastructure delivered the structural design for the Nerang River Pedestrian Bridge as part of the Gold Coast Rapid Transit Project. The bridge spans a total length of 367 metres and affords enhanced pedestrian connectivity across the vibrant landscape of Southport.

Client: McConnell Dowell
Location: Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

Bonacci Infrastructure delivered the design for the Nerang River Pedestrian Bridge, which has a total length of 367 metres and a width of 6 metres. The bridge was constructed from 32 metre long tee-roff girders with two end spans of 24 metres and was designed as part of the Gold Coast Rapid Transit project.

Ship impact was critical to the design of the bridge piers which can be exposed to frontal and lateral vessel impact loads of 120 tonnes and 60 tonnes, respectively. Areas of high level rock presented challenges in transferring the applied loads into the founding material, particularly given that the piers consist of a single circular section.

The bridge deck was designed to accommodate the late inclusion of a large number of utilities, which exemplifies Bonacci Infrastructure’s ability to respond quickly to client needs whilst delivering projects efficiently and cost-effectively.
