Case Study Evening: Darlington Upgrade Project - Adelaide

Darlington upgrade project SA

The Australian Steel Institute (ASI) invites you to observe the best in steel construction.

The $620m Darlington Upgrade Project is another important stage in the delivery of Adelaide’s North-South Corridor and will deliver an upgrade of approximately 3.3 kilometres of the existing Main South Road, including a lowered motorway and eight bridges. Located on one of Adelaide’s busiest sections of road, this landmark project will deliver significant community and economic benefits.

Bridge beams constructed by ASI fabricators Bowhill Engineering and Haywards Steel are currently being assembled into two 3000 tonne bridges and will soon be moved into place via self-propelled modular transporters. One bridge has already been installed using this method.

The case study will be presented by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and Gateway South (a Joint Venture between Laing O’Rourke and Fulton Hogan).

It will provide an overview of the use of steel on the Darlington Upgrade Project. Key members of the design and delivery project team will be outlining the rationale used behind the selection of steel, considerations of fatigue, the corrosion process and the erection process.

Join the speakers after the presentation for refreshments.
