M80 Ring Road Upgrade

This project entailed widening the M80 Freeway, including the 700m long E.J. Whitten Bridge, between Sunshine Avenue to Calder Freeway.  

As part of the work the E.J. Whitten Bridge was widened centrally and joined using an innovative steel structure.  We also widening the tip structure to the west of the bridge, constructed public safety barriers on the bridge, constructed civil works for the freeway management system, widened the existing abutments at Keilor Park Drive to accommodate five lanes in each direction and barriers for the new pavement widenings.  

Our innovative solution for the E.J. Whitten Bridge saw the placement of two new steel girders between the existing concrete box girders, with a concrete deck joining the superstructure together.
