Abstract:
The Green Bridge crosses the tidal Brisbane River linking the University of Queensland at St. Lucia with Dutton Park. The bridge is a cable stay structure carrying a bus way and footpath/cycle track. The client, Brisbane City Council, required a design life of 100 years with consideration given as to how this might be extended towards the end of the original design life. This paper considers the design and construction of the concrete elements in relation to durability and the 100 year design life.
