Elizabeth Quay is part of a bold plan to revitalise central Perth, returning the city’s focus to the Swan River and providing a world-class waterfront destination. This striking 22m high cable-stayed bridge is the project’s centrepiece feature.
The design benefited from the use of a range of digital tools. The analysis of the bridge’s dynamic response to footfall-induced vibrations was successfully confirmed by physical tests of the completed structure.
The judges were impressed by the contribution made by this elegant structure to the enhancement of central Perth. Successfully overcoming a number of technical challenges, the bridge will serve as a landmark for the community.
