The Timber Truss Bridge Book

$40.00

Written for the general reader, this 210 page hardcover book celebrates all aspects of timber truss bridges, with a particular focus on the bridges of New South Wales.  Each of the authors is an expert in their field, bringing engineering, historical and heritage perspectives to an intriguing subject.
In New South Wales, engineers took advantage of native hardwood timber of rare dimensions, strength and durability to build affordable infrastructure that allowed the spread of rural activities by enabling the transport of freight from remote areas.
For more than eighty years, the designs of these bridges were continually refined to improve their performance, meet changing demands and tie communities together. Today, the remaining bridges record the ingenuity of their designers and builders and display the unique qualities of Australian hardwoods.
