Bridge Design

We have a reputation for excellence in design and management of road, rail and pedestrian bridges

Opus has comprehensive bridge engineering capability in Australia, right across the asset life cycle, from conception and planning, through to design, construction supervision, inspections, rehabilitation and strengthening.

Our teams across the country have capability in all bridge structural forms,  small span to long span bridges, and precast to cast in situ construction.


Our experience in Australia

We work predominantly with government clients and contractors in all infrastructure environments, from local government, highway authorities, rail authorities and corporations to airports and water authorities. At Opus, we appreciate that successful bridge engineering solutions often need to be innovative, and our engineers are encouraged to explore different approaches to a problem.

Our approach recognises that innovation is as much about getting the fundamentals right in the first place, as it is about technology. Our highly experienced teams encompass strong bridge engineering design and construction experience, underpinned by an understanding of asset operators’ operational and maintenance requirements. This approach means our solutions are focused on operationally centred outcomes that offer strong value, optimised against constructability requirements and maximising acceptance.
