Significant Achievements

  • The work involved reinforced earth walls at the bridge approaches and abutments.
  • Moorebank Interchange was a two-stage project in which half the overpass was built to take traffic away from the existing intersection and enable the construction of a second bridge.
  • Maintaining traffic continuity was an essential aspect of the work.  There was constant liaison with the Traffic Management Centre about cooperative management strategies.
  • The high traffic volumes through the site made night work necessary.
  • Safety performance was excellent with no incidents occurring.
  • A separate contractor, requiring special planning and cooperation between the two project teams, completed the bridge structure.
  • Consultative approach between all parties such as RTA, Interlink, Daracon and Arenco ensured smooth passage of work resulting in completion some 9 months ahead of schedule
