Tony Gee was involved with the detailed design of the Adelaide Riverbank Precinct Pedestrian Bridge, a Contractor led project of a 135m long footbridge across the River Torrens in Adelaide, Australia.

The footbridge is highly curved in plan and is supported on V-shaped inclined piers. The construction for the viaduct included the deck, parapets, abutments and run-on approach slabs to the abutments, as well as the cladding on the deck and piers.

The Riverbank bridge is an integral element in the Adelaide Precinct Masterplan, providing access to the 140 year old Adelaide Oval. The Oval has been redeveloped into a 50,000-seat World-Class multi-purpose stadium.
