SA Bridge Closure Blamed on Builders

The four day closure last month of South Road tram overpass at Black Forest has been blamed on the builders.

According to reports, a major design flaw was the cause of the overpass not being able to cope with strong winds.

Builders of the South Road tram overpass at Black Forest will be held accountable for the damage done to the crumbling infrastructure, Transport Minister Stephen  Mullighan stated recently.

The builders were contracted by the State Government to build the $30 million overpass. The overpass was opened in December 2009. The overpass suffered damage to its cycle and pedestrian path due to strong southerly winds after decaying debris from the footbridge began to collapse on to South Road.

It was determined that the design of the bearing supporting the shared path bridge, with a 3m high fence on the north side, was not up to Australian Bridge Design Standard.
