Two Arcadis Projects Finalists in 2018 Steel Excellence Awards

Australia -

Narellan Road Pedestrian and Cyclist bridge

Arcadis is proud to announce that two of our projects received success in the Australian Steel Institute’s 2018 Steel Excellence Awards. WestConnex Stage 1B’s Concorde Road Bridge claimed first place, with the Narellan Road Upgrade’s pedestrian bridge receiving a high commendation in its category.
Daniel Driscoll, Structural Engineer for the Concord Road Bridge, said: "It is very satisfying to receive this level of industry recognition for the combined efforts of everyone who contributed to this bridge, which will be a very recognisable part of Sydney's infrastructure for years to come!"

The Concord Road Bridge connects Concord Road southbound to the New M4 Motorway westbound, which will allow commuters to avoid Parramatta Road and two intersections, not only helping to make their commute faster but also removing more cars off Parramatta Road. An impressive engineering feat, the Concord Road Bridge will include both horizontal and vertical curves in its design. The horizontal curve has a radius of approximately 80 metres, requiring innovative designs to maintain strength and safety during construction and when operational. Arcadis were appointed to provide civil design services for the WestConnex New M4 project in a joint venture with AECOM.

The Narellan Road Upgrade pedestrian bridge was constructed over the Hume Highway to provide connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists between Narellan and Campbelltown. Arcadis provided detailed design services on the upgrade project, working with RMS and the bridge contractor Seymour Whyte to develop a bespoke segmental cantilever erection methodology. The shared path bridge was designed as a single pylon asymmetric cable stayed bridge with a steel ladder type deck and a reinforced concrete topping slab. With a main span of just under 50m, the bridge is supported on two permanent concrete piers with a fanned arrangement of cables.
