A new footbridge is to be constructed in Adelaide to make access to the Oval easier.

Visitors to the Oval in Adelaide could soon find it easier to gain access to the site as a new footbridge is to be constructed.

Atkins has been given the task of completing the project, which will see the Riverbank Bridge created to link the city side of the River Torrens with the Oval venue on the north side of the bank.

The bridge is being built as part of an ongoing project to rejuvenate the city and provide better links to the sporting stadium, which can seat up to 50,000 people.

Cameron MacDonald, Atkins’ project developer, said: “The new bridge will form a vital part of the plans that will support the new Adelaide Oval project and the redevelopment of the Riverbank precinct.”

The Oval has a long history dating back to 1871 and is the home to many sporting events, including cricket and the Adelaide and Port Adelaide football clubs.
