WEST GATE BRIDGE
Between 2009 and 2012, APS were a vital part of the West Gate Bridge Strengthening Project. West Gate Bridge is the fifth-largest bridge in the nation and one of Australia’s busiest road corridors. Because of this, safety was our highest priority.
APS supplied over 7000m2 of suspended access platform system to John Holland to carry out the external concrete and steel strengthening works. The supply and use of the operating platforms is the largest temporary suspended access project ever undertaken in Australia and was also the largest suspended access project ever undertaken using the APS Suspended Access Platform System.
APS utilised our own in-house design and manufacturing teams to complete the project in coordination with our highly skilled site teams. Working together, the teams manufactured, erected, relocated, lowered and dismantled the sixteen platforms used for the project.
Having dealt with strict bridge loading constraints, adverse weather, shipping channel traffic and other issues that come associated with projects of this magnitude, we believe that we are now the best in the business when it comes to providing innovative access solutions for projects.
