ROLE: Preliminary and Detailed Bridge Designers
The Point Cross Bridge replacement structure is a single span, 35 m long, pre-cast, prestressed concrete structure supported on fully integral abutments which are founded on steel H-piles. Several pre-cast, prestressed girder options were investigated in order to meet production constraints from the girder manufacturer. The scope of work for Harbourside Engineering Consultants included: overall planning and preliminary design of the bridge, the detailed design of the bridge structure, full structural drafting and involvement with construction services (answering technical queries and review of shop drawings). Construction was completed in the summer of 2012.
