Bridon manufactured, installed and tensioned in excess of six kilometres of cable used to support the new Kurilpa Pedestrian Bridge in Brisbane, Australia.
The bridge was designed using the “tensegrity” principle which offers a lightweight solution for crossing long spans. Tensegrity systems comprise of a series of compression members (struts) inside a continuous network of tension members (cables) with all members loaded in a state of stable equilibrium. In order to ensure a balance between the compressive and tensile forces, a high degree of precision and accuracy is required when fabricating the cable lengths.
