Deck units lifted into place

Nine concrete deck units have been installed this week, signaling the halfway mark of the Orealla Crescent Bridge construction at Sunrise Beach.

Each concrete deck unit weighs 13.5 tonnes and was prefabricated offsite at Beaudesert and transported to the construction zone by semi-trailer.

“We needed about an hour for each deck unit to be installed to ensure they were properly in place and secure,” said Paul Biggs, SGQ Civil Operations Manager.

“Once the beams are in position and secure, we put in stainless steel bolts which are grouted into position with high strength grout.”

This project is a unique, custom-designed build which aims to minimise noise vibration and associated impacts during the construction process.

The multi-million dollar replacement of Orealla Crescent Bridge is a jointly funded Noosa Council and Australian Government project which will improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Detours remain in place until early September. Motorists are encouraged to avoid David Low Way and travel via the Sunshine Motorway.
