CLT helps bridge the gap

Australasian Timber - - AUSTRALIAN TIMBER DESIGN AWARDS -

Res­i­dents in Precinct 16, Pu­tra­jaya, can ex­pect a quicker way to Precinct 1 when a pedes­trian bridge con­nect­ing the two is com­pleted in De­cem­ber. Pu­tra­jaya Cor­po­ra­tion (PPj) has teamed up with Malaysian Tim­ber Coun­cil (MTC) to build the Glued Lam­i­nated Tim­ber (Glu­lam) pedes­trian bridge, es­ti­mated to cost RM1.8mil. At 47m long and 3m wide, the bridge will be made of lo­cal tim­ber. Ab­dul Rahim said the pro­ject would strengthen MTC’s ef­fort to en­cour­age and pro­mote the use of tim­ber, as well as share the ad­vent of tech­nol­ogy in tim­ber en­gi­neer­ing.
