Crosshead segments in place at Camms Road

Crosshead segments in place at Camms Road

Two large segments are now in place for the new road bridge at Camms Road in Cranbourne, Melbourne.

The two crosshead segments form part of the foundational structure of the road bridge. Together, these segments weigh over 100 tonnes, with a 350-tonne crane being used to lift the sections into place.

The road bridge will replace the level crossing at Camms Road to improve the safety and reliability of the road and rail network in the area. Removing the level crossing will also ease congestion and improve safety for 12,000 drivers who pass through it daily. The new road bridge will also allow pedestrians and cyclists to safely cross the rail line.
