The project involved the construction of two bridges across Bowen Drive (between the National Gallery and Kings Avenue bridge) to enable the pedestrians/cyclists using the path around the Lake to avoid the conflict with Bowen Drive. This was always a difficult road to cross.

All traffic was diverted onto one side of the dual carriageway while the first bridge was constructed. Traffic was then switched to the new first bridge while the second bridge was constructed.

As with all projects within the Parliamentary triangle precinct the architectural finishes of the project had to be of the highest quality. The features of the project included:

  • Curved bridge parapets that were constructed with specially made steel forms
  • Weathered steel retaining wall
  • Precast concrete panel retaining wall with panels made in Brisbane
  • High quality exposed aggregate concrete path finishes.
