Congratulations to CCF QLD member NQ Excavations Pty Ltd who has recently been awarded the contract for Evans Street Bridge – Component Repair & Deck Replacement with Townsville City Council (TCC).

Background Information: The Evans Street Bridge has been deteriorating for some time and consequently TCC engaged engineer’s to provide a report to identify what action(s) are necessary to return the bridge to what would be considered as an operationally sustainable rating.

The engineers report has subsequently reduced the bridge’s live load rating and hence the bridge cannot remain in its current state. Works are required to bring the live load rating of the bridge back to a level that will suit the ongoing need of the trafficable surface and structure of the bridge, whilst maintaining suitable access for pedestrian traffic.

Scope of works: The project consists of:
• Repairs to piles, headstocks, abutments and batter erosion;
• The replacement of the entire bridge deck including kerbs and handrail protection; and
• The installation of alternate access off Old Common Road and an entry gate.
