A major milestone was achieved on the Joy Baluch AM Bridge Duplication Project in South Australia with two lanes of traffic opened in each direction on the bridge.
The milestone was delivered by the Port Wakefield to Port Augusta Alliance, a consortium of CPB Contractors, GHD and Aurecon, on behalf of the Department for Infrastructure and Transport.
Works carried out to deliver the two-lane, two-way bridge included:
- construction of a new bridge, adjacent the existing two-lane Joy Baluch AM Bridge, to allow for two lanes of traffic in both directions;
- remediation and strengthening to both the existing Joy Baluch AM Bridge and the bridge over the ARTC rail corridor between Flinders Street and Mackay Street;
- upgrades to pedestrian and cyclist facilities; and
- upgrade to the intersection at Mackay Street and Augusta Highway
In addition to the Joy Baluch AM Bridge Duplication Project, CPB Contractors is partnering in the delivery of a number of other key regional projects as part of the Port Wakefield to Port Augusta Alliance. These include the Port Wakefield Overpass and Highway Duplication Project and the Augusta Highway Duplication (Port Wakefield and Lochiel) Project.
