Arising from an international competition, the design of this tallest pedestrian bridge flows organically in seven wave spans, connecting hills and parks within the Southern Ridges. The design is socially responsive and environmentally friendly. It is a work of art, a landmark that everyone identifies with.

Design should improve people’s lives
The challenges were complex, from implementing the highly precise design based on mathematical formulas to minimising the ecological impact of the bridge. The result was an integration of both form and structure, a creation of a social infrastructure and a destination by itself.
