Aurecon Industry Awards 2019

Batemans Bay Bridge Replacement

Batesman Bay, Australia

IAP2 Australasia Core Value Awards (International Association for Public Participation)

With NSW Roads and Maritime Services
– Winner: Infrastructure Project of the Year

Roads and Maritime Services engaged Aurecon to carry out the concept design and environmental assessment for the project, including community engagement and consultation.

Aurecon’s engagement programme delivered meaningful contributions from the community to the design of the new bridge. The team used a wide range of communication tools – from traditional to digital – to ensure the wider community had a chance to have their say.

Feedback received from the community that directly influenced design included: height of the new bridge; visual design; access from Princes Highway to North Street for large vehicles; local road access at Old Punt Road; foreshore improvements including boat facilities and tribute to the current bridge.
