Design of the Nepean River Bridge

This paper provides information on the design and construction of a dual use pedestrian/cyclist bridge over the Nepean River near Penrith, NSW. The approved concept design at tender consisted of a 175m clear span steel truss with reverse curvature in plan, with prestressed precast concrete beam approach spans on the western side and a large cantilevered concrete abutment to support the eastern end of the steel truss.

The Velobridge

This paper explores a range of issues relating to "velobridges" (bridges that are designed principally for cyclists). These issues include external clearances, the user envelope, loads and limit state criteria, deflections and dynamic behaviour, access and mobility, security screening, railings, kerbs and balustrades.
