CMC successfully delivered the Kingsthorpe Haden Road Bridge on 16 June 2015, with local commuters now enjoying full use of this new and improved piece of infrastructure.
Located approximately 1.6 kilometres from the Warrego Highway, CMC was appointed by Toowoomba Regional Council to deliver the Kingsthorpe Haden Road Bridge over Gowrie Creek.
CMC proposed an alternative primer seal design that, once in place, enabled construction to continue across the tie-in areas and through the bulk of the site. The initiative eliminated the need to construct a side track for public traffic and also the requirement to execute complex traffic staging.
Works included construction of the new bridge structure, remediation of the creek banks, removal of the existing road embankment and stabilisation of all exposed earth prior to demobilisation.
Led by project manager, Mr John Deste, the team successfully overcame a number of challenges relating to services relocations, driven piles, and wet weather to deliver the works.
All works were completed with zero LTIs.
