Development Victoria’s Tanderrum Bridge project has been shortlisted in the 2017 Premier’s Design Awards.

The bridge, which opened in January 2017, is one of 21 finalists in the awards which will be announced in November.

The awards citation notes that Tanderrum Bridge can be understood in a variety of ways; as a gateway to the city, a part of the Birrarung Marr landscape, and as an urban catalyst between Melbourne & Olympic Park and the city.

The Award jury felt that the bridge reinforces local identity by referencing the history of Speaker’s Corner and Birrarnung Marr’s indigenous heritage while connecting and opening up Melbourne Park and the Australian Open to the city.

Congratulations and good luck to the project design team John Wardle Architects and NADAAA and sub-contractors GHD, Oculus, ElectroLight and Buro North.

Tanderrum Bridge was delivered as part of the Victorian Government’s $972 million Melbourne Park Redevelopment project.
