“Today is an exciting day for Landcom’s Lachlan’s Line project, with work beginning on this innovative, eye-catching bridge that will become a landmark in our city,” Landcom chief executive John Brogden said.
“Its sinuous, fluid form gives it a sculptural quality, and the bridge will be very noticeable, with its blue spiralling truss design.”
The bridge will support the 5,000 new residents who will eventually reside at Lachlan’s Line masterplanned community.
The precinct will feature 2,700 residential apartments, high-quality open spaces, parks, playgrounds and retail spaces, all connected to North Ryde Station.
“Thousands of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists will interact with this engineering marvel each day, which is another example of Landcom’s commitment to providing high quality, safe infrastructure for residents of our developments and the wider community,” Brogden said.
Construction is expected to cause some disruption to motorists at various times due to temporary lane closures with the majority of construction to be largely undertaken at night.
