A pedestrian bridge traversing the North Esk River forms an important link between the University of Tasmania’s Inveresk campus and the City of Launceston.

The bridge is a shared pedestrian and cyclist pathway that connects the cultural, educational and sporting precinct of Inveresk with the Willis St to Cimitiere St neighbourhood south of the river.

The bridge is intended to be a simple and low linear form that sweeps over the river. The external materiality of the horizontal portion of the bridge is steel supported on tapered concrete piers. Steel cladding encases the bridge deck and structure and provides a streamlined continuous casing.

The bridge offers connectivity over the river providing that end of the city with ease of access to the Inveresk precinct. It’s a response to the university’s ambition for the campus to have a strong focus on ‘walkability’, enhance accessibility and encourage visitation to vibrant shared community spaces.
