Swan Street Bridge Concept Design

Swan Street Bridge Concept Design News / New Project / 11.09.2016

McGregor Coxall worked with BKK Architects to prepare a design for the Swan St Bridge competition. The proposed bridge upgrade forms a critical link between the Melbourne Sporting precinct and the CBD. The project will deliver improved travel times, and improve amenity and road safety for all users of the bridge.

Currently the lanes on the bridge are not utilised efficiently leading to long delays and lengthy queues during most of the day and peak periods. From microsimulation modelling it is estimated that motorists will save up to 5 minutes per journey during peak periods. The landscape architecture strategy incorporates improved crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists with reconfigured access points at street level to the river foreshore.
