Project Overview / Description

This Contract was located at Koombooloomba approx 37klm from the township of Ravenshoe in Far North Queensland.

Construction involved the removal of 90mtrs of existing timber corbels, girders, corrugated deck and road pavement / Design, fabricate, install & operate a 35tn Gantry crane / Fabricate new precast concrete deck system and install to specification / Construct relieving slabs & road approaches.
