The $37.64M Kingston Bypass was the largest road infrastructure project ever to be awarded to a Tasmanian company in its own right. VEC completed the bypass six months ahead of schedule.

The Project

The Kingston Bypass was jointly funded by the state and federal governments to relieve congestion in Kingston and provide a safer, more efficient journey for the 18 000 commuters that pass through the Channel Highway on a daily basis.

VEC’s Structures and Civil teams worked seamlessly to deliver Spring Farm Overpass, Summerleas Bridge, interchange ramps, a large roundabout, and a two-lane carriageway with provision for a future dual carriageway. Alongside the traffic benefits of the project are the social improvements such as White Water Trail - a cycling and walking path, and the facilitation of further development in the region.

Summerleas Road Bridge

This double span bridge is 50m long x 14m wide, with two central pier walls. It comprises 14 No 1200mm deep T Beams, 113m x 750mm diameter bored piles, soil nail wall abutment  rotection, and a 2.3m high protection scree on either side.

Spring Farm Bridge

Spring Farm Bridge is a double span bridge, 50m long x 14m wide with two central pier walls. It has 14 No 1200mm deep T- Beams and 107m x 750mm diameter bored piles. Spring Farm has reinforced soil wall abutment protection.
