Bridges

MCM has an unequalled record in the delivery of technically challenging rehabilitation projects to tight budget and time constraints. We are, first and foremost, project managers with the systems, expertise and resources to undertake any difficult rehabilitation contract. We have completed many bridge repair and protection projects in Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria and Tasmania. The types of work typically undertaken may include concrete repair, structural strengthening, crack injection, cathodic protection and protective coatings.

There is a variety of risks and restraints in such work, and a sound track record is essential if the work is to be done safely, reliably and on time.

For example, nearly all bridges remain fully trafficked while the repair work is going on. This requires careful assessment of the structural implications of the work, as well as proper management of any interface with the public, which may include pedestrians and boats as well as road vehicles. In addition, many bridges requiring rehabilitation are over salt water estuaries, and specialist access systems are required to get to the parts of the substructure that need repair. They are also often in locations of significant environmental sensitivity, and reliable precautions are needed to ensure that the environment is adequately protected.

MCM clients include State road authorities such as RTA, VicRoads, ACT Urban Services, QLD Dept of Transport and DIER; State Rail authorities such as QRail and Railcorp NSW; and a variety of city and regional councils.

Our knowledge of operating on a wide variety of bridge structures in a range of environments is invaluable in ensuring we can deliver challenging and significant projects to the client's requirements.

The sample projects on this page indicate the variety of road and rail bridge contracts completed by MCM in three different states.
