CompletedSeptember 2015

The long low lying Capella Creek Rail Bridge was replaced by a pre-cast concrete structure. It was part of the 22 Timber Bridge Replacement Program, Designed and Constructed by VEC for Queensland Rail.

The design and construction of the Capella River Rail Bridge was part of the 22 Rail Bridge Replacements contract for Queensland Rail. The Capella River Rail Bridge is between Emerald and Longreach in outback Central West Queensland.

The bridge comprised of ten 8.725m and seven 6.725m spans. With a live flowing creek passing under the bridge, there were strict environmental controls required to ensure there was no sediment discharged into the river. Furthermore, with a significant amount of flora and fauna within the locality of the construction site, stringent flora and fauna management systems were implemented to protect the environment.
