In what is an Australian first, the project team manufactured a 3,000 tonne, 180 m long bridge in a construction compound adjacent to the existing highway and moved it 500 m into position using SPMT Equipment.

SMEC is part of the Gateway South Consortium, comprised of the Design Joint Venture (SMEC, Jacobs and KBR) and Construction Joint Venture (Fulton Hogan and Laing O’Rourke) engaged to design and construct the project.
