Homebush Bay Bridge
Project: Homebush Bay Bridge
Location: Rhodes and Wentworth Point, Sydney
Client: Fairmead Business Pty Ltd
Lump sum design and construct contract to deliver a 480m long bridge across Homebush Bay and into Wentworth Point in western Sydney. The bridge is designed for pedestrians, cyclists, public buses and emergency vehicles, and connects the rapidly growing Wentworth Point residential area with public transport in Rhodes.
The main structure over water featured 68m spans constructed as balanced cantilevers using match-cast segments cast on site. Foundations were driven steel tubes with a submerged reinforced concrete pile cap and piers. Precast segments up to 90 tonnes weight were erected using a heavy lift crane barge established specifically for the project.
The project was delivered as an integrated joint venture between Brady Marine & Civil and VSL Australia
