20 Super-T bridge beams to go

THE steady procession of massive bridge beams through our city is drawing to an end – for now.

The 60-tonne 30-metre-long Super-T beams have been built at the Leighton Contractors Precast Facility at Coffs Harbour South and hauled to the Ballina bypass project under highway patrol police escort.

Leighton Contractors has only 20 left to deliver over the next two weeks from a batch of 340 and they’re usually on the road at first light to minimise traffic disruption.

The company is now moving into production of similar beams for the Sapphire to Woolgoolga and Kempsey bypass projects.

Abigroup has also been transporting beams from Macksville to the Queensland border for infrastructure projects.
