Kalang River Bridges

Date: 2014 - 2015
Project: Kalang River Bridges
Location: Urunga, NSW
Value: $5M
Client: Lend Lease Engineering Pty Ltd

Brady was engaged by Lend Lease to deliver the substructures and erect girders on the Kalang River bridges, part of the Nambucca Heads to Urunga Pacific Highway Upgrade project. 

With no access for barges from the sea, works were facilitated by first constructing our heavy duty temporary bridge across the 120m wide river, including fingers to access the pier locations.

Foundations included 1.2m driven steel tubular piles with internal excavation and a reinforced concrete plug. Works included the placement of precast concrete semi-submerged pile cap shells, dewatering and their structural connection to the driven piles. 85 tonne T-Roff girders were erected as a tandem lift.
