HORSHAM’S Anzac centenary pedestrian bridge was honoured at the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia’s engineering excellence awards.
The award was in the category for Victorian projects valued at up to $2 million.
Horsham Rural City Council’s technical services director John Martin said it was a deserved recognition for the engineering team.
“Jess Leslie and Josh Hammond from our engineering team, and Michael Mackley and David Puls from our operations team were committed to this project from start to finish,” he said. “Those staff were directly involved in hands-on work on the bridge, and coordinating the input from local contractors and design consultants.”
Wimmera River improvement committee president Gary Aitken said the group was an advocate for the bridge and the “outstanding structure” was deserving of the award.
