The Longford Truss Bridge over the South Esk River, adjacent to the township of Longford, is one of the most important bridge assets on TasRail’s Network.

The Project

The project involved the installation of new structural steel members including removal of existing lead coatings and application of protective coatings.

VEC were successful in securing the contract to strengthen the 140 year old structure by replacing 17t of existing steel members and introducing 16t of additional steel plates to strengthen the bridge trusses. The bridge has an overall length of 128 metres and consists of two spans.
