Dry Creek Mawson Lakes

Working with the City of Salisbury, our team provided Structural, Civil and Lighting design services for this 88m mixed use bridge over Dry Creek drainage reserve at Mawson Lakes.

Our approach to digital engineering allowed us to first build the bridge virtually, empowering our teams to de-risk the project by collaborating our data rich, 3D models across all disciplines. We used the models and structured data for material take-offs, mass of structure, lift analysis, model reviews, clash detection and visualisations even before the dirt was dug.

Sitting upon steel tubular piles, the bridge comprises two 44m spans made up of two lightweight steel Vierendeel arch trusses which not only provide structural integrity but also a seamless integration into the surrounding urban landscape. Tying it all together, a durable decking material made from fibre-reinforced plastic provides a safe underfoot solution for both pedestrian and cyclist users. 

Transforming this once underutilised area, the bridge has created valuable access to the Mawson Lakes Interchange and Town Centre for residents south of the rail corridor.
