The Killymoon Creek Bridge is located approximately 28 km south of Townsville and forms part of Queensland Rail’s North Coast Rail Line. This part of the scope of works included the construction of a two by fifteen metre span bridge. With works being completed over significant waterways, the environmental planning of this project played a key role in its successful completion.
Sheep Station Creek
This part of the project included the replacement of two timber bridges on-line at Sheep Station Creek and Sheep Station Creek Overflow on the North Coast Rail Line. The bridges are located northwest of Ayr in Queensland. The Sheep Station Creek bridge stands in permanent water, while the second bridge is within the overflow area. Unlike Killymoon Creek, the Sheep Station Creek Bridge replacements entailed the design and construction of the structures. The main bridge composed of the following span lengths:
- 1 x 10.7m
- 2 x 8.8m
- 2 x 7.3m
The bridge over the overflow was 1 x 8.8m and 1 x 7.3m spans. Crocodile sightings were not uncommon within the area of this construction site, so extra safety precautionary measures were implemented to safeguard all of the people on site.
