Events from October 15, 2020
From October 15, 2020 6:30 pm until October 15, 2020 8:30 pmSynopsis The constructed Matagarup Bridge connects East Perth (western river bank) to the Burswood Peninsula and the new Perth Stadium (eastern river bank). The bridge is approximately 65 m high, 370 m long with a 165 m long cable stayed central span. The bridge is supported on two river piers and two piers on land. A total of forty-eight 1.05 m and 1.2 m diameter close ended steel tube piles were driven to support the piers. This talk presents the geotechnical design and construction considerations of the bridge, with specific focus on the bridge foundation and the temporary causeway constructed to facilitate the successful construction works.
