Transmission Gully, Bridge 20
WorkZone have been working along with the client and contractors on this 27 kilometre four lane motorway which will run from Mackays Crossing to Linden, through Transmission Gully. Bridge 20 Pier 2 Access Tower is a 34 metre high structure at a width of 3.07m with two 0.73m bays which included a 2.07m infill bay. The use of Layher Allround Lightweight standards and ledgers along with the Layher aluminium comfort stairs played a big part in the success of this project.
“Being able to erect the stair sections as each pour was done, then crane up into position went a long way to increase site safety, saving time and manual labour”, says Kurt Simpson of WorkZone.
“Layher’s design team were able to provide our client a 3D pdf of the stairs, which demonstrated how the scaffold interacted with the pier foundations. Our client now insists on these designs for all scaffolding work carried out on site” he commented.
Speed and versatility
Kurt went on to say, “the speed and versatility of Layher on a project of this scale has been amazing. Also being able to work in a way where harnesses are no longer required is a game changer”.
The Transmission Gully motorway is scheduled to be open for traffic in 2020.
