Tootool Underbridge Renewal
The underbridge at Bullenbung Creek, within the township of Tootool, lies on the Boree Creek Branch Line about 563 kilometres south west of Sydney.
This underbridge consisted of 40 timber trestles all of which were slowly deteriorating and in need of replacement.
We carried out a very detailed survey of the underbridge as well as of the topography, creek and existing track.
The engagement also involved the re-design of the horizontal and vertical alignment, which was required to commence the gradual trestle replacement program.
We eventually replaced the bridge in 2011 (for Rhomberg Rail Australia) using a series of pre-cast concrete culverts.
