Recent concrete pedestrian structures in Sydney

The selection of a pedestrian structure to cross a main road is often a difficult task. Site conditions tend to dominate the arrangement of stairs and ramps and often influence the features of the main structure. The paper describes four pedestrian crossing structures recently constructed for the Department of Main Roads, NSW. The reasons for their general features, the structural principles involved and some construction aspects are discussed. The information presented may be useful for a design engineer faced with the problem of evolving and designing a pedestrian overbridge that is functional and of a pleasing appearance. The structures presented are the pedestrian overbridges at nelson street, woollahra; the pacific highway, mt. Kuring-gai; franklin street, holroyd and the pedestrian subway near pymble railway station.
