This project was the final stage of construction required to complete the Townsville Ring Road link, a 22 km freight bypass of Townsville.

A total of 11 km of highway was constructed during this stage, including:

Earthworks, drainage, pavement, retaining walls, concrete barriers, signs and finishing works were also part of the project.

RUD Australia was engaged by Humes Holcim to engineer a lifting design to position the deck units and piles.

A 35-tonne spreader beam was designed, manufactured, proof loaded and certified by RUD Australia. The beam was a 25-metre long modular design and included cast-in lifting hoops.

The spreader beam improved safety and efficiency for lifting heavily prestressed units.

There were a number of benefits for Humes Holcim:

The lifting hoops also had some resulting benefits:

RUD Australia’s safe, lightweight and cost-effective lifting solution ensured that ring road construction could progress under tight timeframes.
