09:50 Case Study – Bridge Joint Engineering and the Importance of Routinely Maintenance to Extend Asset Lifecycle

Lendlease Engineering has six current Design Construct Maintain (DCM) Projects. One of which is the Brunswick Heads to Yelgun shortly (B2Y) project that consists of a dual carriageway highway approximately 8.6km long and semi-integral bridges.

The maintenance of the Small Movement Joints (SMJ) on the semi-integral bridges presented a major challenge. These joints are cheap and easy to build, however they proved to be extremely difficult to maintain and repair. They are supposed to be low maintenance and to offer good ride quality, but our experience presents an entirely different picture about them. The task is to find a repair method that will achieve its design life, will be financially affordable and will provide good ride quality for the road users.

In this session, Laszlo will reflect on Lendlease’s journey to achieve this challenging task through innovative engineering and routinely maintenance to extend lifecycle of assets.
