WINNER - CATEGORY A - LIDDELL CONTRACTING for Crooked River Bridge Strengthening
What started as an investigation into bridge structural integrity turned into an urgent structural strengthening.
In partnership with a structural engineer, Liddell Contracting installed and underpinned new abutments, scour proofed piers and repaired and strengthened pier caps, deck bracing and holding down bolts on the Crooked River Bridge on a key Council road near Lake Brunner. The work was complex and challenging but was delivered quickly with minimal road closure and excellent value for money.
