Abstract

The Angle Vale Bridge is the last surviving laminated timber arch bridge in Australia and one of very few in the world. This type of bridge was not durable but in South Australia important developments were made which improved its durability. The bridge has been conserved using funds obtained under the CEP scheme and from the Bicentennial Authority and the surrounding area has been landscaped.
