Shamrock Civil Engineering was engaged to complete the Chardon Bridge Replacement project for Logan City Council. The project involved the design and construction of a new two lane / three span concrete deck bridge to cross Albert River on Chardon Bridge Road in Cedar Creek. The new bridge replaces a previously existing timber bridge and improves safety and access for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclist alike. It has been designed with future weather events in mind with flood proofing built into the design.

Scope of works
  • Implementation of environmental impacts and controls in high risk area
  • Demolition of existing bridge
  • Earthworks including approximately 2500m3 of fill
  • Removal and replacement of 1050m3 of unsuitable material
  • Bridge construction including bored piling, structural steel erection and placement of precast deck units and precast pedestrian footpath
  • Scour protection at abutments
  • Construction of 171m of road approaches including kerb and channel, pavement and asphalt
  • Pouring and curing of concrete footpaths
  • Road furniture including fencing, guardrails, linemarking and signage
  • Landscaping

Our project team faced numerous challenges throughout the project including inclement severe weather with Cyclone Debbie and heavy rainfall resulting in flooding, as well as having to perform the works in a high risk environmental area. Despite this, the works were completed on-time, with zero lost time injuries and with no environmental breaches. This was a result of the project team’s successful planning and strong commitment to safety and the environment.
