The last three bridges are all located in Australia's largest city, Sydney. The next two are from further north, in Queensland.
Head inland from the north Queensland coast to find the delightful historic town of Yungaburra. One of the attractions here is the walking track along Peterson's Creek, from where it's possible to see platypus and tree-kangaroos (although not when the Happy Pontist visited).
In 2008, local man Lloyd Abell provided funding for a new bridge to connect the walking trail across the Creek, a structure now and hopefully forever known as Lloyd's Bridge. There's a commemorative plaque on one of the bridge masts, and an explanatory sign nearby.
The suspension footbridge spans 30m over the creek. A sign makes clear that the maximum load is 10 persons - this is not a bridge suitable for the absurd 5 kPa of normal footbridge design, nor should it be.
The bridge comprises a deck of longitudinal planks supported on timber cross-bearers. These are suspended via 8mm hangers from the 16mm main cables. A cable in a rough plastic sheath is clamped to the hangers to form the handrail and to hold up mesh infill balustrades.
The main cables are anchored into turpentine poles forming the bridge towers, and then into concrete anchorage blocks.
Some people may wonder why I'm covering such a seemingly minor structure and non-notable structure here. Well, firstly, I just have a soft spot for small-span pedestrian suspension bridges. Secondly, I think they illustrate how much variety is possible even with a seemingly small niche. If you look at the minor details on this and similar bridges (how the main cables attach to the tower, or how the hangers attach to the main cables), you'll find every one is different, and I think there's endless fascination in seeing how others have solved the same problems in such a variety of different ways.
The bridge lacks stiffness and moves considerably under load, but the mesh balustrades effectively damp vibration. The bridge creaks very noticeably when used, the level of noise being proportional to the success of the damping, and therefore reassuring, to a structural engineer at least.
It's a pragmatic structure, blessed with a minimum of design, and well done.
