First major bridge installation

In a mammoth effort by all members of the project team, the Darlington Upgrade Project’s first major bridge installation has been successfully completed well ahead of schedule, with Main South Road and the Southern Expressway reopened to traffic by late Sunday morning (26 November, 2017) more than 21 hours ahead of schedule.

The 3000 tonne, 180 metre long bridge was manoeuvred into place over the weekend, and is the first of eight bridges to be installed for the project including two on Main South Road over the Southern Expressway to carry northbound traffic from Main South Road to the new lowered motorway and surface road.
