About This Project

The Principal invites tenders for provision of the following: Scope of Works In 2013, NPSP Council & the Town of Walkerville jointly engaged Opus International Consultants (OPUS) for the purpose of undertaking a detailed assessment & design of the refurbishment of the Bridge. The recommended refurbishment works requires full Development Approval under the Development Act. The Councils have written to the relevant Minister to start this process. The Bridge spans approximately 57 metres across the River Torrens & consists of a marine ply deck supported by steel straps which transfer loads to eight supporting wire ropes. The ropes are connected to cast iron support frames at either end. The Bridge is listed as a Local Heritage Place by both Councils due to its history, structural form, importance of its location & its prominence in the area. OPUS have therefore been mindful that refurbishment works need to be sympathetic to the Heritage Value of the Bridge. The proposed refurbishment works include: a) Replacement of the marine ply deck & supporting ply joists with an environmentally sustainable fibre board composite; b) Replacement of all flat bar support straps; c) Replacement of all bolts, nuts & screws; d) Replacement of the existing eight (8) wire ropes, including verification testing at six (6) & twelve (12) month after initial tensioning; e) Retaining existing cast iron anchor support frames, break away existing concrete foundation beams, clean & then repaint with an acrylic elastomeric coating; f) Cast new anchor support frames into new reinforced concrete foundation beams with piles to resist lateral & vertical loads; g) Refurbish existing anchor support frames & cast into concrete footings; h) Adding a wire mesh to the balustrade; i) Upgrading the Western approach staircase (Gilberton end) by recasting the reinforced concrete staircase with balustrades on both sides, tactile grip indicators and non-slip nosings; & j) Upgrading the eastern abutment by clearly delineating the approach footpath from the footpath that travels through the River Torrens Linear Park.
