D Form Civil were engaged by our client Bild Group to complete a bridge replacement project in regional Victoria. The project was to replace the existing bridge on the Rushworth-Girgarre Road, due to its age and size, with a larger more efficient bridge. The project consisted of demolishing the existing bridge while simultaneously constructing the new bridge in a timely manner to re-open that stretch of roadway.

The D Form Civil package comprised of the full formwork, Reo and Pour Package (FRP) of the new bridge structure. This entailed 2 bridge abutments, the bridge deck/kerb and diaphragm, the landing of the Super T beams, walkway construction with temporary handrail and 2 approach slabs. The team used the conventional formwork method for construction of the abutments which allowed for speedy construction and re-use for the deck/diaphragm pour. The team were faced with below zero temperatures during the construction of the deck and had to improvise by implementing thermal blankets to meet Vic Roads specification and deliver a high-quality finished product.
