Pedestrian Bridge Construction Crestwood Reserve NSW

When The Hills Shire Council were searching for a solution to upgrade the Crestwood Reserve pedestrian bridges and creek the team at Devcon stepped up to the challenge.

Our team designed a solution to meet specific flood risk levels, control sediment, ensured noise restrictions were in place to keep the public and local residents happy during the works and ensured safe detour options were in place for pedestrians throughout the upgrade. Due to the highly public location of this job we employed additional safety measures to keep everyone safe and sound.

In one location Devcon removed an existing concrete pipe drainage network and headwalls prior to widening the existing creek and installing the 600m2 of riprap scour protection. An existing water main was relocated to below creek levels along with temporary relocation of Uecomm communications networks during construction. This process was then followed by the fabrication and installation of a brand new bridge.

In the second location our team removed an existing bridge prior to raising existing bridge headstocks, completing earthworks and retaining walls.

It wouldn’t be a 2022 project if we weren’t battling Mother Nature, though our team are confident when it comes to quick thinking and master planning. Heavy rain during this particular project resulted in additional pump solutions in order to keep water flow under control so that deadlines were met. Difficulties in manufacturing and material supply tends to be a constant pattern as well which we are constantly on the front-foot with innovative ideas and solutions to get the job done.
