This project involved the conservation of a the heritage, 113 year-old ex-railway bridge and associated civil infrastructure at Currumbin. The renewed bridge was constructed wider than the existing bridge with the heritage of the existing structure retained.
As part of value-engineering and cost savings for our client, Alder Constructions designed and constructed a specially designed hydraulic scissor lift that was fixed to a floating barge. The lifting device was used to float and place some of the precast concrete deck units onto the bridge piers near the centre of the creek where accessibility was a challenge.
