Standardised bridge superstructure design
We’ve developed a standardised bridge superstructure design to provide a consistent standard across Tasmania.
The standard design will enable a cost-effective solution to be produced by the Tasmanian precast industry. This will make the design process more efficient, and make it easier to provide a timely response after an emergency.
The design may also be adopted for use in suitable bridge replacements undertaken by Tasmanian infrastructure owners.
A Design Guide, which includes information about the process of designing, constructing and maintaining a bridge that includes a standardised rectangular plank superstructure was also developed.
You can download the Design Drawings and Design Guide below.
Note: The Standardised Plank Design is limited to the bridge superstructure. A site specific design is required for the substructure (abutments, columns/walls, or footings/piles).
