Merseylea Road Bridge Replacement


Bridge Replacement over the Mersey River

75m long, three span, two lane bridge using Super-T Beams.

Client: Latrobe Council

Contractor: VEC Civil Engineering

The previous timber bridge was washed away in the June 2016 floods.  Engineering Edge designed a replacement 3 span, 75m long, two lane bridge which was built on steel piles and consisted of precast pier blocks, precast super T-beams and insitu deck.  The bridge was raised in the middle span to increase the waterway capacity.  The bridge also has an allowance for a stock fence to be installed to allow cows and traffic to use the bridge simultaneously.
