We’re just at Patterson River here.

It’s part of the Level Crossing Removal Project.

[Vision:  Time lapse of bridge construction works]

So we’re just building a bridge, just to link the two sides of Station Street.

[Vision:  Shauna speaking]

You can see in the background the jack-up barge and the hammer and the 250 tonne crane.

[Vision:  Barge on Patterson River]

To build the bridge we’re going to construct 12 pier piles and pier [0:00:22].

Each of those piles is a steel tube varying from 15 metres to about 45 metres.

We have four spans across the bridge.

They will get lifted in by a 250 tonne crane on the south and northern abutments and spans two and three will be floated down the river.

Construction started early March and we’re hoping to complete the project before snapper season starts.
