Cross section

CROSS-SECTION

Typical on Deck Cross Section


Approach concept west side

Approach Concept – West Side


Approach concept west side1

APPROACH CONCEPT – WEST SIDE

  • Benefits Include:

  • Maintains at-grade Esquimalt / Harbour Intersection

  • Includes overpass between E&N and GGRT Trails and improved hotel access

  • Provides cyclist / pedestrian access on both sides of bridge (N+S) at approximate 4-5% grade


Approach concept east side recent concept

APPROACH CONCEPT – EAST SIDE[recent concept]

  • Benefits Include:

  • Will be able to connect Harbour Pathway in front of east abutment

  • Provides improved cyclist and pedestrian facilities

  • Provides potential train station site


Double leaf bascule concept

Double-Leaf Bascule Concept

  • Benefits

    • Two smaller / lighter lift spans; less susceptible to wind loads

    • Reduced mechanical loading on each span

    • Some potential cost saving

  • Challenges

    • Power to west side of bridge

    • Mid-span rail connection


Cost estimate information
