The Reid Highway works included installation of eight Tee-Roff beams weighing up to 160 tonnes (manufactured by Georgiou Precast during consecutive nightshifts) as well as Stage 1 of the rail infrastructure works required for the new bridge.
The team completed the works on schedule, following months of meticulous planning and coordinating.
On the last shift, the Mitchell Freeway was opened 45 minutes early to traffic. This may not sound like much, but when the whole operation is monitored through a 30min x 30min detailed plan, 45 min is a significant achievement.
Successful completion of these works released large portions of the site for follow-on activities including superstructure construction and roadworks tying into the new bridge.
