PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project for earthworks, rail and concrete at Bridge 11, Pannawonica required the replacement of the flood damaged bridge with two large 25 metre diameter multi plate arches.

With work requiring completion by the end of November in order to eliminate the potential for river flow, this Project was high risk for the timeframe.

The Project was completed ahead of schedule and was undertaken in Joint Venture with our Indigenous partner Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi Foundation Limited (NYFL).
