South Australian steel fabricator Bowhill Engineering has
successfully delivered the first stage of the superstructure for two bridges that are being constructed adjacent to the road and lifted into position.
In what is believed to be an Australian first and part of the $620 million North-South Corridor Darlington Upgrade Project, the two 3000-tonne 180-metre-long bridges will be moved into place via Self-Propelled Modular Trailers known as SPMTs.
A total of eight bridges are being built and installed for the Darlington Upgrade Project, which is expected to be completed in 2019.
