This was a design to performance spec project for which RPC was the concrete works sub contractor to Issac Construction who were awarded the main contract including all roading and associate footpaths and planting. RPC employed Smith Crane and Construction who we have had a long working history with and worked very closely with them to design units that they were first able to precast in their precast yard and then transport the 40km to Southfield Drive.
These had to be within crane rating at 24m and lastly be quick to assemble on site as the existing river could not be diverted for an unlimited time. We finalised on 6 precast boxes weighing 38 ton each (one of which is seen to the left being trucked in). These had insitu joints to the bottom with a continuous topping slab over the top deck to tie them together to form one complete structure. Wing walls were a precast item brought in a day later and aprons were poured as an insitu pour between the wing walls tied to the precast box units. This was fun rewarding project with a great result for all parties involved.
