Five Islands Road Bridges, Super-T Girders
Speers Point, Lake Macquarie
Five Islands Road is a critical road transport link between the western shores of Lake Macquarie and Greater Newcastle. This project involved duplication to dual carriageway of Five Islands Road from two to four lanes.
Construction of two new 176m eight span precast bridges over Cockle Creek were required.
SCI manufactured and supplied 80 No. 1000 deep Super-T girders 22m long for both bridges. The girders were erected over water on to piled cast-in-place piers.
