The Design and Construction to replace six deteriorated load limited timber bridges with concrete structures, including installing bridge barriers and approach guardrail. Furthermore, the project included the demolition of the existing bridge structures, with two of the new bridges requiring construction of new road alignments built by the client in parallel with the bridge replacements.
The structures are reinforced concrete, providing a 100 year design life, SM1600 design loads, and NSW RMS (D&C) Specifications. With design specific to each location, VEC fabricated the precast concrete components in our Ulverstone precast facility, and the structural steel in our workshop and these were then transported to site. Works were completed 6 months earlier than the contract completion date.
