About this Project

Our experienced crane operators constructed the pre-assembled scaffold directly from the barge under the bridge. The mid-river scaffold allowed construction crews to replace the bridge’s wooden sleepers and perform extensive maintenance and paint work without disruption to commuters.

Key Scope

  • 350-tonnes of scaffold
  • Erected off-site
  • Crane lifted
  • Careful drafting process to ensure success
  • Specialised safety plan
Scaffolding South Brisbane
Scaffolding Bridges

As the only inner-city rail crossing the Brisbane river, there were demands of rail and waterway traffic, as well as high winds and weight restrictions, as the scaffold had to be transported by barge from the Port of Brisbane to the CBD.

The team carefully designed this project every step of the way allowing us to complete the project on time, in budget and with zero incidents.
