Nepean River Pedestrian Bridge Site Visit

The current Nepean River crossing of the Great western Highway at Emu Plains utilises the two lane heritage listed Victoria Bridge. The pedestrian crossing also utilises this bridge using a narrow pathway on the southern side with no barrier between traffic and pedestrians.

The Nepean River Pedestrian Bridge project started in 2010 and has involve the feasibility, design and construction of a combined pedestrian and cycle paths across the Nepean River at Emu Plains. The final design and construction package is a separate pedestrian cycleway located to the south of the existing bridge.

The selected solution which involved community consultation and workshops enhances public access and safety to the popular river walk, and enable unhindered access to the river for popular rowing course.

Construction work to build the bridge started in mid-2016 and is expected to take about two years to complete. The site visit will include a technical discussion outlining engineering challenges and solutions of the project along with details of the unique construction methodology. Following this presentation will be a site visit
