London Street Bridge
After more than 90 years acting as a key link between Kirton Point and the city of Port Lincoln, the London Street Bridge required reconstruction. The bridge had all but reached the end of its design life with restricted access and a load limit of ten tonne. Legally loaded heavy vehicles were not able to use the bridge and the configuration did not meet road safety and bridge standards.
Tonkin Consulting assisted Council in preparing a detailed design funding application for the replacement of the bridge as part of the Australian Government’s Bridge Renewal Program and successfully secured funding to deliver the project.
Tonkin Consulting were engaged to deliver all aspects of the project and provide ongoing support to the City of Port Lincoln with responsibilities including preparation of the business case for funding application, structural assessment, project management, stakeholder engagement, detailed design and superintendency services.
The bridge will provide a rehabilitated traffic route allowing for various modes of transport including heavy vehicles. Extensive consultation has been undertaken with key stakeholders to ensure requirements for the project are met and ensure continuous flow of traffic for the adjoining communities.
