Progress on new bridge continues

11 November, 2020Echuca-Moama Bridge Project

Stage 3 of the Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is progressing well, with the new bridge over the Campaspe River really beginning to take shape.

We have finished building all the pile caps and the bridge piers, and around two dozen concrete Super-Tee beams have been installed since 20 October.

The beams, which weigh up to 80 tonnes and are 35 metres long, are being craned into place.

Stage 3 of the project includes new bridges over the Murray and Campaspe rivers, two additional flood relief bridges and a shared walking and cycling path along the length of the crossing.

The $323.7 million Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is playing an extremely important role in driving Victoria’s regional economic recovery efforts.

As well as the hundreds of workers directly employed by the project, local suppliers and manufacturers are benefiting as well.

All 125 concrete Super-Tee beams which will form the majority of the decks of the new bridges over the Campaspe and Murray Rivers and the two flood relief bridges were manufactured locally in Kilmore by NVC Precast, which was founded in Northern Victoria in 1989.

So far, they’ve spent around 5,000 hours fabricating these beams and thanks to the $70 billion pipeline of Victoria’s Big Build Projects the business has been able to take on new hires, providing ongoing employment for Victorians.

The Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is jointly funded by the Australian, Victorian and New South Wales governments.

The project is expected to be complete by mid-2022.
