The Kings Avenue Overpass is the most significant piece of urban and traffic infrastructure to be constructed in Canberra’s Parliamentary Triangle since New Parliament House opened in 1988. The elegant solution by a multi-disciplinary design team headed by JPW, belies the complex urban design, engineering, traffic management and programming challenges presented by the $30m project.
“This project delivers engineering excellence as much for its ingenuity of design that seeks to complement and enhance Canberra’s National Triangle, as it does for the management of a complex construction around the busy operation of the intersection.” Jury Citation, Engineers Australia – ACT Division Awards, 2011
