This Project involved the repair and maintenance of an existing timber bridge located on Midlands Road (near Moore Street) over Moore River in the Shire of Moora. The bridge consisted of an 8 span timber superstructure which was largely replaced for steel elements. Timber abutments and wingwalls were replaced with new concrete designs. A new reinforced concrete overlay was provided and widened to 12.3meters to cater for heavy vehicles (including a pedestrian footpath on the Western side).

The project included:

  • Demolition and replacement of the reinforced concrete overlay (RCO);
  • Demolition and replacement of the pedestrian footpath including installation of 7No. screw piles;
  • Demolition and replacement of three wingwalls and installation of concrete sheeting over another;
  • Demolition of timber abutments and construction of new concrete abutments;
  • Demolition and replacement of approach slabs;
  • Removal of various timber superstructure elements and replacement with steel including stringers, corbels and halfcaps;
  • Repair of deteriorated timber pier piles with steel piles encased in concrete.
  • Removal and replacement of guardrail;
  • Asphalt overlay;
  • Miscellaneous works including linemarking, signs, rock protection, kerbing, footpath approaches etc.

The project was effectively managed without environmental incident. All of the works were completed on time and on budget.
