The scope of works included concrete patch repairs to structurally significant members, repairs to the deck joints, replacement of the deck wearing and footway surface and repairs to the concrete bridge joints on the two bridges.
While replacing deck joints and deck wearing courses our team had to work under the traffic while only being able to close one lane at a time. This was addressed by implementing an appropriate traffic management plan.
There were also extensive approval processes that needed to be addressed to gain entry into the railway corridor. By planning our program well, we were able to take these timely processes into consideration and mitigate any delays to our program.
Furthermore, access to the railway corridor was limited due to high frequency train traffic. Here too, meticulous planning was involved to ensure there were no delays to our program of works. By ensuring there was a Track Protection Officer and Authorised Person on site during the works, we could ensure that the works were conducted in an efficient manner.
Finally, the works were conducted under overhead powerlines which meant that appropriately trained and competent personnel were critical to the safety of delivering this project.
