Fulton Hogan is working in conjunction with the City of Hobart on the new $9 million Tasman Highway Memorial Bridge project.
The bridge will provide a shared pedestrian/cyclist link, connecting the Cenotaph and Soldiers Memorial Avenue on the Domain, two of Hobart’s most significant public spaces.
Construction commenced in late 2017 and works are scheduled for completion Remembrance Day 2018, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
Ashley Cooper will be supporting Matthew Grundy (Project Manager), Jesse Ballard (Site Engineer) and Peter Sitkei (Foreman) leading the team through the delivery of this iconic project.
Key features of the design
• Four metres wide and approximately 200 metres long
• Provides safe and universal access to the Soldiers Memorial Avenue and Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre on the western side
• Connects to the Inter City Cycleway and other existing Domain and Cenotaph pathways on the eastern side
• Is over 6.5m high for over-sized vehicles over two lanes of the Tasman Highway and a minimum of 5.4m high over all other lanes
• A high-quality design, which will display well both in daylight and after dark
• Minimal impact on existing memorials, including trees
