2:20 PM Case Study: How VicRoads Assists with Technical Design of Bridge Structures to Accommodate Road and Rail Networks
In Victoria, the Inland Rail will potentially impact 30 bridges along VicRoads’ network. This includes the expectation of six new bridge replacements and 24 bridges with track lowering. As such, VicRoads’ is playing an important role as a stakeholder for this project, offering technical design solutions and assisting the ARTC in the planning stage to ensure the best outcome possible for both the bridges and road networks, and the safe construction and operability of the Inland Rail.
- Developing strong relationships and engagement with various internal and external stakeholders including legal, state government and the ARTC on the planning, project development and impact on VicRoads structures
- Design that matters in the planning phase: Assuming the role of SMEs to deliver advice and input on i) the proposed design and technical solutions, and ii) the safety and constructability of the infrastructure
- Taking into consideration bridge and road infrastructure and the impact it will have on bridge replacements and track lowering designs to accommodate rail infrastructure
