LENNOX BRIDGE PORTALS
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Construction of two access portals through the abutments of the State Heritage listed Lennox Bridge over the Parramatta River is now complete. Signage and displays within the portals tell some of the history of the original early 19th Century structure. Before the project, the bridge was known to have two distinct sections; one built 1839 and the other (which widened the bridge) built in 1935. During construction of the portals, archaeological excavation works revealed the presence of a third wall beneath the Church Street road surface, a remnant of the old ‘Gaol Bridge’ that crossed the river before the Lennox Bridge was constructed on the same site. Artefacts, including a pier from the old ‘Gaol Bridge’, were researched and conserved by qualified archaeologists during construction works. Research confirmed that the old ‘Gaol Bridge’ dates from 1802-1806 making it the oldest in Australia.

SHONE AVE REALIGNMENT STAGE 2

bridge1 - SHONE AVE REALIGNMENT STAGE 2
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Every road or pedestrian bridge project is individual. Variations in complexity and scope demand a clear focus on client needs and a flexible approach to project design and delivery. With that kind of approach, Abergeldie has been building bridges to connect communities for over a decade.

Some of our successful, recent constructions have met the need to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety: the Thornton Pedestrian Bridge, commissioned by the RTA, gives school children a protected way to cross the New England Highway; the City Road Footbridge at Sydney University (inside cover) allows safe pedestrian access between campuses; and the Stanhope Parkway Bridge provides fast and secure access for residents to major retail and community facilities.
