Upgrade of an old concrete bridge
Geolyse were engaged to design for the required widening and upgrading of an old concrete bridge near Mudgee. Our engineers designed extensions to the old piers, new erosion protection measures and a precast deck to be stitched on to the existing structure. The new deck deflection under traffic loads matched the old bridge to prevent cracking and allow for a smooth surface. The construction period was limited to a few weeks and all work was done without closing the road to traffic.
