The West Gate Tunnel Project will deliver a vital alternative to the West Gate Bridge, providing a much needed second river crossing, quicker and safer journeys and remove thousands of trucks from residential streets.
The project is a partnership between the Victorian Government and Transurban and will be built by construction contractors CPB Contractors and John Holland (CPBJH JV). In 2019 and 2020 CaSE Australia were awarded a number of bridge engineering and temporary works packages. The project comprises a number of bridge structures including precast segmental and steel composite:
Apart from temporary works design, CaSE scope includes the analysis of more than 100 girders of the steel composite bridge structure using MIDAS Civil software to analyze stage deflections, optimize lifting and construction methodology, and ensure stability of the structure in all temporary stages while the bridge is being built.
