Westgate Bridge Melbourne
AWD designed the Technitruss Access Platforms for the West Gate Bridge strengthening project.
14 suspended access platforms of varying dimensions, totaling in excess of 5,500 sq. metres, were located at various locations along the full length of the 2.5km bridge and utilised to provide a safe means of access and provide a work area for the carbon fibre installation works.
As the work progressed the platforms were relocated at regular intervals in order to provide full access along the underside of the bridge.
Special articulated sections were provided to provide ‘V’ shaped platforms which follow the shape of the bridge soffit.
